Editorial Reviews

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries) and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac, ON THE ROAD tells the timeless story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley, Control), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund, TRON: Legacy), a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga). Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of it - the pure essence of experience. Seeking uncharted terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounters an eclectic mix of men and women who each indelibly impact their journey toward self-discovery. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), Tom Sturridge (Pirate Radio), Academy Award® Nominee Amy Adams (The Master), Alice Braga (Predators), and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), ON THE ROAD is a landmark odyssey from America s legendary Beat writer brought to vivid life by one of the most talented filmmakers of modern times.

Customer Reviews

This was by far the WORST movie I have EVER seen.
Coffey
Sad thing is, this film had SO much potential and could have been something truly extraordinary with more character and plot development.
Doug Park
If you have never read the book this movie will not make a lot sense to you.

What a let down. This is some sort of re-cut version, not the theatrical version that I seen. Censored and re-cut. Hopefully there will be an unrated version released. I feel cheated. Not recommended.

There is bound to be a generational gap in the audience response to Walter Salles' and Jose Rivera's adaptation of Jack Kerouac's immensely important book ON THE ROAD, a story about the 'first beatnik' who in the aftermath of WW II found the world not only confusing but senseless, and his way of trying to find his place as a writer spawned his book that is in many ways a diary of three years of living on the lam, penniless except for occasional odd jobs to finance gas, food and crash pads. It is a Whitmanesque song of independence and yearning for meaning and love and acceptance and Salles and Rivera, with considerable assistance from the musical score by Gustavo Santaolalla and the cinematography of Eric Gautier.

The young unfocused writer Sal Paradise/Jack Kerouac (Sam Riley)is joined by free-spirited Dean Moriarty/Neal Cassady (Garrett Hedlund in a magnificently realised portrayal) and his girl, Marylou/Luanne Henderson (Kristen Stewart) and Carlo Marx/Allen Ginsberg (Tom Sturridge)as they travel across the USA at breakneck speed, stopping in Denver and New York and other places trying to understand themselves and each other. They encounter a mix of people who each impact their journey indelibly: Old Bull Lee/William S. Burroughs (Viggo Mortensen) and other less well known but important to the road trip played by such fine actors as Steve Buscemi, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Terrence Howard, Alice Braga, Elisabeth Moss, Danny Morgan and many more. The characters encounter and deal with drug abuse, sexual orgies, the entire spectrum of sexuality, marriage and children and divorce and above all the joys of freedom of place, of sex, of behavior, and of experiencing the kindness of strangers and the beauty of the countryside of America and Mexico.

Let's just get this out of the way - the movie is not the book. Now that we've established that truism for most book-to-movie adaptations, let's move on.

Just to give a little background on my mindset before I viewed this movie, I am not a Kerouac fan. Reading Kerouac as a black woman, is like repeatedly sticking a fork in my eye in some parts. It's painful to read the misogyny and the romanticism of picking cotton (When I read he thought he could make it his "life's work," I almost threw the book out of the window). But, I continued and actually understood his mindset by the end of the book. However, I really never wanted to be in his head again. It was a scary place.

So, as you could probably tell, I had my reservations about the movie. However, the cast won me over. When you have Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kirsten Dunst all in one movie, you can practically guarantee some fine performances and I wasn't disappointed at all. In fact, I'm a huge Kristen Stewart fan, in particular, and she blew me away, per usual.

On the Road is a story about a search for meaning in life - the "It." These young people were driven by their personal searches for God, their fathers (and in some ways their mothers), and a place to call home. They found all of those things in each other. Particularly, Sal Paradise (Jack Kerouac) found those things in Dean Moriarty (Neal Cassady) and vice versa. They hurt people along the way and made horrible life choices. But, they lived put loud and inspired others to do the same. This movie did an amazing job of showing the joy and pain in this journey that Sal took.

The title basically says it all. I have seen at least two other reviews that mentioned this, but not enough. The version you buy here is NOT the full version, but CUT. If you want the full version, do NOT buy this and waste your money. Hopefully, an uncut version will eventually come out in the future, but until then, only buy this if you do not mind that it has been cut.

By its very nature, Jack Kerouac's autobiographical "On The Road" is an episodic sojourn of self-discovery that doesn't really lend itself to the film medium. Since its publication in 1957, many have eyed the possibility of a big screen interpretation (and, indeed, several seventies road trip classics owe a debt to it), but the iconic book has never made it past the screenplay stage. Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) has owned the rights to "On The Road" since 1980 and he's finally served up a version under the hand of director Walter Salles (he did the great Brazilian drama Central Station). Together, I'd say this handsome and well made film is both surprisingly faithful to the source material but also somewhat aloof from an emotional standpoint. Is it the book? Absolutely not. So those expecting a literal translation from page to screen will always have something to complain about. But for my money, the film does capture the spirit of this journey. At times riveting, at times perplexing, the movie is loaded with a veritable "who's who" from a casting standpoint. Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Elizabeth Moss, and Kirsten Dunst, as some of the more recognizable names, all take relatively small parts in the overall picture. But the movie primarily focuses on a tangled romantic trio portrayed by Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kristen Stewart.

Sam Riley plays aspiring writer (and Kerouac stand-in) Sal Paradise. Living on the fringes of the artistic community, his existence is rocked by his introduction to the charming Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund). He is fascinated by this free spirit and inspired by him. Moriarty represents the true freedom of America, open both emotionally and sexually to the experiences life has to offer.
