    He’s inconsistent imo, some of his films (the top two) are phenomenal. Beyond Forte and Squibb I found Nebraska insufferable.

    1. Sideways
    2. Election
    —-a billion miles—-
    3. About Schmidt
    4. The Descendents
    5. Citizen Ruth
    6. Nebraska

    May I strongly suggest those who havent seen Citizen Ruth give it a watch? Especially if you like Laura Dern. Or even if you dont.

    I liked Citizen Ruth a lot and personally would have nominated Dern for Best Actress. It’s lightweight compared to most of Payne’s subsequent films, but is still far superior to Nebraska.

    The Descendants is the only movie of his I didn’t care for, and yes, Dern should have nabbed a nod for Citizen Ruth. It was almost as egregious a snub as Witherspoon’s.

    I’d say, it’s more ‘scathing’ than lightweight, but glad you enjoyed it.

    I enjoyed Nebraska, although I dont see what’s so odd about a character Squibb’s age being so direct and foul mouthed. At that age, she’s earned that perogative.

    So happy for Dern though. About time he was noticed, and cited.
