Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska” is shot in Black and White. Bruce Dern as Woody Grant in the picture

Come Oscar season and for a change there are indeed a handful of standout movies that are rightfully vying for the coveted Best Picture gold statuette. Gravity is a thrill ride in the best tradition of science fiction movies, American Hustle is an entertaining con-romp based on a true story; Wolf of Wall Street, while not Scorsese’s best,  is a dynamic tale of greed and hedonism, Her, an intriguing and ironic love story and 12 Years a Slave is a compelling and poetic study of a black man’s harrowing experience as a slave.

However the one movie that beats them all as a pure cinematic experience is Nebraska, a stark, minimalistic, beautifully photographed look at fading small town America. Directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants) with an eye for detail »
