Critic Reviews for On the Road
This isn't a story of rock 'n' roll bad behaviour or larger than life characters, and in some ways that's refreshing.
Even its most audacious device - the undifferentiated braiding of pure documentary and narrative footage - feels a tad old hat relative to newer hybrid forms in nonfiction filmmaking.
The dramatic elements seem awkwardly soldered on to the narrative, as if the director couldn't make up his mind what sort of film to make, and opted to have his cake and eat it, without ever really savouring either experience.
Occasionally a delightfully intimate filmic device, it soon wears thin and will frustrate Wolf Alice fans since the band mainly waft about in the background.
This doesn't shake up the usual practices of Winterbottom films - in that context, the casual style is thoroughly familiar - but it does yield a movie that might appeal to lovers of the rock ethos in general.
