Payne might be my favorite director working today. I'll be there, though that's not exactly the most exciting cast.

Yeah, love him but does every one of his films have to include a specific city/state as a character?

It didn't seem to play a big role in Election (and while most disagree, I still argue that is his best movie)

Payne makes good movies, and I love Odenkirk.

It's only taken 21 years for Odenkirk to land a starring role in a feature. It's about fucking time, and I'm thrilled its in a Payne movie.

"Better call Saul" starring in a Payne film. Awesome.

One of my favorite directors. I hope he does films more often now.

I never care who is in the cast when Alexander Payne is directing......it's always good.

Bob Odenkirk and Will Forte look like they could be family in real life.

Still waiting for a movie with Tom Waits and Ron Pearlman playing brothers.

Agreed. Payne + Odenkirk + Bruce Dern? I'm there.

I thought Election was widely considered his best film. It's certainly my favorite film of his.

^just want to point out that the lack of color is not an accident, the movie is being theatrically distributed in black and white

Will this be a an Oscar buzz release in December, most likely?

I'd really love to see a trailer some time this summer.

Payne's films often have the capacity to make me feel very uncomfortable. I had a difficult time finishing About Schmidt, for example, because I watched on DVD and was able to keep pausing it. I have a feeling that this will be another one so I had better go see it in the theater so I cannot pause it.

Have you ever finished a Todd Solondz movie?

I've only seen Happiness and recall thinking it was good and not something I had much trouble finishing.

Perhaps the apparent glibness of Dern's character will make this easier to watch. Who knows? I certainly had no trouble with Sideways and it is one of my favorite films.

Anyone hearing some early word on this film? It's almost here, just a few more weeks.

and??? How was the movie?

It doesn't look all that appealing, but I have faith in Payne that it will indeed be very good.

Re: Nebraska -- D: Alexander Payne S: Odenkirk, Forte, Keach -- 2013

oh sorry - I loved it, it was a great mixture of drama and a lot of humor - the acting was cross the border excellent. Bruce Dern while quite spry in reality really brought out a nuanced performance. Forte also surprised me - for a dramatic role (for an actor that is most usually associated with comedy) he nailed it. June Squibb performance as the mother was stunning and the scene in the cemetary (which in fact was the first scene that was shot) is one of the best scenes of the year 'in cinema'

highly recommended.

Good to hear. I planned on seeing the movie this Friday, but something came up. I hope it gets a halfway decent release, but i kind of doubt it.
