A perfect example of why the Oscars do not matter. With six nominations and no wins this film shows that it is utterly brilliant and triumphs above many others from this year. This simple black and white film about family and reflectiveness is both funny and touching; a perfect balance of comedy and pathos. Bruce Dern is fantastic in the lead role as an older man who is confused generally but wants to go on one last adventure and stick it to life. With a lot of heart and substance this screenplay heavy film is very impressive.
