On the Road

On the Road, my last film of the year.

It happened! It finally happened, after all this time, waiting and waiting, after being postponed only so many times I finally saw On the Road on a big screen. And by the way, it was beautiful.

I do believe this film was an inspiring, beautiful and quite a brave tribute to the classic and acclaimed novel On the Road. With such a dense material, I have to admire Rivera’s keen absorbing skills, and with Salles’ work, they made some of the novel’s essence come to life, it is a tremendous atmosphere of what the story is made of, I think. They brought Sal Paradise, Dean Moriarty, Marylou, they brought the landscape, the burning sun, the madness, the words, they created an On the Road tone!
