    This is a film of open spaces, satisfied with a deliberate pace and a natural, open, vibe, shot with beautifully captured landscapes that breathe, and performances so natural you can feel the valleys and scars of time with your fingers. Rich, complex characters (and a few winking stereotypes) fill the frame, uncomfortably grumbling from, but content with and loyal to the close range of picture perfect family eccentricity. We've always grasped the despondency of the underdog in Payne's movies, and Woody's character is positioned as almost a foregone conclusion to their narrative, surrounded by frustration and failure, but this film isn't mawkish, depressing or cloying. It's peaceful, graceful, awkward, funny, calmly resigned, a little bittersweet, and a deeply satisfying watch that left me happy to be alive, thankful for my experiences. 6 years 11 months ago

    June Squibb gives one of the funniest performances I've seen in a while - good God, I've known old ladies like her. 6 years 9 months ago
