CinemaBlend: On The Road Review

CinemaBlend: There are many classic American works of literature whose subject matters lend themselves to movie adaptations. On The Road is definitely not one of them. Partially populated by transient supporting characters and paced by rambling journeys with little more than vague, easily altered itineraries, On The Road is, even to its biggest fans, a bit of a hot mess. There’s really no way to reign the material into a coherent structure without altering the hungry and aggressive spirit Jack Kerouac breathed into the work, and since that’s kind of the whole point, making a good, neat adaptation is impossible. (Cinema, On The Road) 2/5
