The Road. (2009) John Hillcoat
I'm not pleased with the writing I did on The Road; it was too reactionary even for my reactionary little blog. Maybe one day I will see it again, and perhaps at that time I won't even hate it as much as I do now. I'll certainly let others try to make a decent case for it in the meantime, but until the day comes where I can be persuaded of its merits, I'll fondly remember The Road as the one that goes down best with Jonestown Kool-Aid -- a wrenching film which grovels in and brings on abject despair.
