On The Road: VIDEO


The Walter Salles adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On The Road gets a new trailer.

From The Hollywood Reporter's review:

But it’s the group adventures that count the most, and Salles has captured some of them quite evocatively: A wild New Year’s Eve party where Dean and Marylou dance in a sexy frenzy; a calm and weird stay at the Louisiana home of the William Burroughs character, Old Bull Lee (Viggo Mortensen, very fine); another sexy scene in which Marylou simultaneously pleasures Dean and Sal (out of camera range) as they all ride naked in the front seat of their car; Dean’s escape from domesticity with Camille as he joins Sal at a club to see Slim Gaillard, and a wild sojourn south of the border for mind-blowing weed and Mexican whores.

Less effective are Dean’s (Garrett Hedlund) quest for his long-lost father in Denver, the windy ramblings of Allen Ginsberg equivalent Carlo Marx (Tom Sturridge) and an out-of-left-field episode involving a fastidious gay man (an unbilled Steve Buscemi) keen to buy Dean’s services.


Set for release in November.

  1. I went to high school with Garrett Hedlund. He's a hottie.

  2. I saw this when it ran at a film festival here a couple of weeks ago. Compared to the soft-focus, easy-listening-music-filled KStew sex scenes, the random Steve Buscemi gay scene is practically homophobic. Not worth the effort at all.

  3. Well, this movie looks too good, and Garrett Hedlund looks too good, for me not to give this movie a viewing.
