All Critics (209) | Top Critics (46) | Fresh (200) | Rotten (9)

  • A captivating, immersive and deeply emotionally intelligent character portrait

    December 30, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • More than most road movies, this is a series of brief encounters, of short, intense friendships and sad farewells. As Wells says, "I'll see you down the road."

    December 30, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The least actressy of actresses, McDormand merges completely with the landscape and everybody in it. The friendships that Fern makes spring from a collective store of commonsense gained from experience and coloured with playful good humour.

    December 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Chloe Zhao's thoughtful balance of majesty and intimacy makes Nomadland one of the most accomplished films of the year, an emotional tour de force that moves you but never imposes or manipulates.

    December 19, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Zhao once again relies on mixed methods, non-fiction rendered into compellingly realistic drama thanks to a cast of non-professional actors playing versions of themselves. The result is as stimulating and satisfying as it is iffy and curious.

    December 8, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Fern works at an Amazon plant to afford a life with no fixed address. The bitter irony that she prepares packages she could never herself receive is especially felt during the pandemic.
