The black-and-white of Alexander Payne's masterful film "Nebraska" seems to depict a forgotten, bygone version of the Upper Midwest, with endless prairies, open skies and dying towns. The absence of color adds a touch of dignity to a story of a man who is clinging to one last, foolish hope to reclaim his honor as a man and as a father.
The few words Woody does share manage to convey his contempt for his children or a feeble but ever-present desire to be liked and admired by men his own age.
