    Let Them All Talk

    ★★★★½

    Wow. How are people not freaking out about this? I’d read about how this movie came to be and I was excited to see it play out - but nobody told me about this interwoven, connected, and thrilling Rubix cube of a movie.

    ★★★★½

    Nomadland exists at dusk, where the sun relents its judgement and society returns to its spoils. It is cold, but warmly lit. It is exposed, but its dangers are known. It is hidden, but only from those who don't want to see it. It's just passing through, but lovingly held, for a moment, by Chloë Zhao.

    There's a fine line between naturalistic and real and I have no idea where this movie lands. Frances McDormand is transcendent. And the cast…
