smndvdcl's rating of the film On the Road - Unterwegs

With hindsight, a disconcertingly messy adaptation that misrepresents the Beat movement and Kerouac's sprawling novel which arguably belongs in the travel writing genre. Acting is vibrant (Hedlund, Stewart, Riley), but in this case, Salles' direction is unintentionally discombobulated. The film's final arc scolds a generation's fleeting spark of hedonism. For better or worse, a cautionary tale, not an appraisal.
