Review: The Road (2009)
Don't agree with Flicks reviewSorry Andreas, but I am going to have to highly disagree with your review. I thought it was a remarkable and captivating film. I learned to appreciate these kinds of film not too long ago and I admire the effort that has gone into making this sad tale into an on screen gem. Its very slow moving, but that didn't bother me, I was just relating myself to the situation they were in and wondering how I would deal with it.
In regard to the flashbacks, I thought they were extremely relevant as we needed to have something to look back on with not having any idea what happened to the world itself.
In regard to the cannibals lurking around the place, I felt they didn't need any more details than was shown, What else could you need to know? They are people pushed to the brink of death by starvation, and thats how they have chosen to deal with it. It does rise the moral dilemmas that go along with cannabilism but if you think about it, what lengths would you go to to survive?
All up a moving tale of a father and son relationship in a torn world. They were treading on high ground to even attempt to portray this on screen, and I think they did it to the best that could be expected.
