First official review of “The Road”

And it ain’t positive.  Based on the award-winning book by Cormac McCarthy, this was one of the more anticipated movies of year.  As a huge fan of the novel, I knew this would be a hard movie to adapt and nail both the book’s bleakness and hopefulness. The trailer, which I did not like, was the first warning sign.

Of course this is just one review from one man, we’ll all know for sure when it opens Oct. 16th. It’s currently playing at the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals.

*UPDATE: The Road is now opening Thanksgiving weekend…hmmmm.
