Nomadland Reaction and Review
Have You Seen It?
In addition my listeners want to know if I’ve seen Nomadland.
Not An Action Movie
It’s Real And That’s Why It’s Great
Did I Say Real?
Firstly this is a movie about a very real topic.
American Workers Crisis
Forced Into Nomad Life or Freedom?
Consequently I can be forgiven for thinking the main character in Nomadland is ‘forced’ into life as a nomad.
However not everyone agrees with my assessment.
How Do You Do it?
In addition I often get questions from people about “how I do it”.
Cue The Raised Eyebrows from Dad
Certainly the movie got that right.
Life With No Tether
To sum up that is why it’s a great movie.
Most of the people in Nomadland are real nomads.
Life Doesn’t Pack Neatly Into A Box
And there are elements about their lives and experiences that aren’t neatly wrapped up in a box
We Don’t All Have Brand New Sprinter Vans
Or summed up in that Instagram pic of that young sun kissed blonde woman and her boyfriend taking a shower on the back of their one hundred thousand dollar Sprinter Van.
Bureau Of Land Management Camping Isn’t Yellowstone
Sense Of Freedom
But the movie gets the sense of freedom right.
Your Experience May Vary
My truck is heated.
Pan frying steaks is my specialty. Obviously I eat meat. Not soup out of a can.
I don’t use a bucket.
This nomad gets along just fine in truck stops.
Diesel #2 is pretty awesome fuel.
A New Trend
If you’re considering it don’t let the movie scare you away.
