I wanted to like this film more than I did. I really adore the actress Frances McDormond, so I expected a lot. The acting is great, but the plot was a bit dull and this film moved along quite slowly. Perhaps I will appreciate this movie more, if I watch it again in a year or two...

Very dull story with no ending --waste of time

The "story" is good but the dialog is dull and predictable with boring conversations and sad story characters. It could have been told in 15 in 20 minutes and the romance angle was "thrown in." Fran's acting consisted mainly of a stern face with with a few forced semi condescending smiles. Photography and scenery were beautiful.

Sorry, Wanted to like it. Sounded good when I read about it.
Overall concept was interesting, however slow moving, depressing and boring. No real plot.

This movie stinks! No splosions or karate. If I want to watch someone poop in a bucket, I'll just hang around my house for about 15 minutes. If you want to look at a sad lady for 2 hours with terrible background music check this out.

I like drama and certainly do not need a whole lot going on in a movie, I just don't get all the love for this movie. It certainly didn't deserve an oscar for best picture.

Certainly Frances McDormand is one of the best actors out there, and she is terrific in this movie, but overall I thought is was just a good little movie worth a look. It kind of dabbled with an anti-consumerism message, but her character worked for Amazon (among other places), so I didn't quite understand the dichotomy there.

The scenery and cinematography were terrific and beautifully shoot, just not enough imo to carry the movie given the sparse plot.

If you like your movies to have a lot of action or to be plot driven, this might not be for you. I enjoyed it because Frances McDormand is such a great actress. The fact that most of the characters were real people playing themselves was different and interesting.

From the films I have seen so far, agree with the pundits that this film deserves its six Oscar nominations and winning Best Picture, Best Director (Chloé Zhao) and Best Actress (Frances McDormand , her third.) As in Zhao's other films, several modern day nomads acted as themselves, and somehow brilliantly. The ending leaves the audience to make their own choices in their lives ahead. I aplaud Fern's being a healthy and resilient 61 year old woman.

Most of the significant quotes are in IMDb already, thanks to its contributors:

There are a couple of poetry not in IMDb:

Shakespeare's Macbeth, meaning of life:

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.
And all of our yesterdays
have lighted fools.
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle.

(--- Below are left out in film ---)

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Shakespeare's Sonnet 18:

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake
the darling buds of May.
And summer's lease
hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot
the eye of heaven shines.
And often is
his gold complexion dimmed.
And every fair from fair
sometimes declines.
By chance or nature's
changing course undimmed.
But thy eternal summer
shall not fade.
Nor lose possession
of that fair thou ow'st.
Nor shall death brag
thou walkest in his shade.
When in eternal lines to time
thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe
and eyes can see.
So long lives this,
and this gives life to thee.
