On the Road


On The RoadUS release date: December 21

Take me down to Sal Paradise story, where the cactus is green and the girls are easy; and there will be a lot of butt naked Dean Moriarty.
It’s a road movie, so audiences certainly will have to tolerate the abundance of walking, driving, and hitchhiking scenes. But if Water Salles really want to adapt and translate a novel to a film, he should be able to trim more typing and writing scenes. We know Sal is a writer, so we don’t need to see it over and over again. Scrap the redundant narration overdub while the character is shown typing or writing the words, and vice versa. It is surely unnecessary to show characters reading their own words.

My Rating: 5/10
