Product Description

Amazon.ca

Set in the late 1940s and based on the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac, On the Road is the story of young writer Sal Paradise's journey--a journey back and forth across America in search of freedom, self-expression, and self-discovery. Feeling lost after his father's death, Sal (Sam Riley) is intrigued by the free-spirited Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and impulsively joins him on a cross-country drive. With a criminal past and a hankering for independence, sex, music, drugs, and traveling the open road, Dean possesses complete disregard for the law, social niceties, the feelings of the women in his life, and anything but the present moment. Sal finds his initial trip with his new friend exciting and energizing. History repeats itself, as it is apt to do, and the friends make several more trips across the country together. But even as they revel in their unique relationship and the liberty of traveling, the inevitability of change will eventually affect Sal and Dean's friendship as well as their relationships with their families and friends. On the Road is a dark, contemplative, steamy tale of sex, depravity, circumstance, and the search for personal fulfillment that is at once repulsive and highly intriguing. --Tami Horiuchi --This text refers to the DVD edition.

An excellent transfer of an iconic book to the silver screen. Not everyone will be pleased, and some legendary parts are left out of course, but the portrayals of the characters are spot-on and the atmosphere of shrugging and yearning is created with flair. The camera work is superb with none of the claustrophia induction or tricky-angle usage sometimes over-used in close confines. Every word is clearly and carefully articulated. There is a degree of shambolic narrative, as seen in the book, but a clear direction.

Jack, I think, would be pleased.

There's something to be said for a cast that can carry a story that would be a hard sell for a movie today and probably shortly after the novel was written. I rented it first, bought it so I could give it another viewing, and it stands as a good character movie. The three principles of the real life story and those that try bringing them to life, are convincingly pulled off. Congrats to the cast, and I hope they enjoyed doing the movie and making me feel they wanted to be there.

this movie was a waste of time, to much time spent on sex scences that just dragged on, but some of the sex scences were quite relevant to the movie, not enough time spent on sal/jack and his desire to be a writer. mega dissapointment
