The Road

“Finely written as McCarthy’s novel may have been, it was also a bit of a slog—loosely connected, deeply upsetting anecdotes with little in the way of forward momentum. On screen The Road suffers miserably from this structural deficit. There’s no promise at the end of their journey, just a direction to be followed. It’s a slow wander, waiting for bad shit to get worse.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 11/25/2009
