AB's Movie Reviews - Nomadland

What's It About? - A woman loses her job at a Sheetrock plant and instead of just finding another job (duh!) she gets in her van and drives around the country to random campsites while doing odd jobs. That's the entire plot. Period. 

Is It Any Good? - I've seen most of the movies that'll dominate awards season, and I've gotta say this movie simply wasn't that great. It was boring, pointless and depressing. Needless to say, it won a boatload of Golden Globes and will probably dominate the Oscars too. As much as I loved the unapologetic blackness of Judas & The Black Messiah and One Night In Miami, I totally understand why those who vote on such things would much rather reward a milquetoast profile on Middle America. I'm frankly shocked Hillbilly Elegy didn't get more nominations. I'm shocked I made it through this horribly boring and repetitive movie.

Should You See It? - So yeah, unless you wanna watch a clinically depressed woman in a white work van drive around the Dakotas for 2 hours, hard pass on this one. 

What's The Rating? - 3 stars out of 5
