    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. 5 years 9 months ago

    these days it is very rare among directors to get a deep massage in the simplest of forms .. the whole mood of the film got my facial expression all riled up I smiled , laughed , frowned , got surprised , cried and had a look of pride at moments during the whole thing .. call me emotional but it is something different and I salute Alex Payne from the bottom of my heart ! 5 years 9 months ago
