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.
Excellent movie adaptation of the Kerouac novel of the same name, captures the spirit of an era most people have forgotten now really. My only real criticism is the fact that its a very LONG movie.
