On the Road

On the Road(2012)

Was expecting it to in no way hold up and that Salles was crazy even to try this. Also thought it would damage the purity of how people find this book. I was totally wrong. Salles captures the spirit of the novel and for me it was like re-experiencing my own discovery of Kerouac and that world, but this time through film. Hedlund, I thought, nailed it. The critics are destroying him, but these are not people I expect to understand the spirit of Dean anyway.
