Great Movie, 8/10, didn't read the book which it's based, but anyway, is a dramatic and very emotional road movie, and kinda sad. if you are an art-house movie buff, you will certainly like it
I think every few years it is important to revisit On The Road just to see where I am at Artistically--this version of the events is much more in tune to the book compared to a lot of the documentaries I have seen which is interesting. The soundtrack is AMAZING--likely reason enough to see this film. I found the actors young, which was nice, and the guy that played Burroughs was amazing. The queer elements are played much more realistically and less "dramatic" which is nice. I really loved the scene in which Jack takes Neal back to see their musical hero--as the stand at the bar you can actually feel the falling nostalgia and crisis to come. A great scene in a much better then expected film.
Loved it. I was worried about Kristen Stewart in a movie about the Beat Generation but she was wonderful. The double handjob scene even made me blush.
I didn't really think that this film captured Dean very well. Disappointing adaptation of an age defining novel.
