It took three decades to bring the seminal book to the big screen, and finally, the road trip tome from Jack Kerouac received a mid fest showing. His fifth trip on the Croisette, (two shorts in omnibuses) with The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) and Linha de Passe (2007), I think you can make an argument that Walter Salles was the man for the job. An ensemble that included Garrett Hedlund (as Dean Moriarty), Sam Riley (Sal Paradise), Kristen Stewart (Marylou), Amy Adams (Jane Lee), Tom Sturridge (Carlo Marx), Elisabeth Moss (Galatea Dunkel), Kirsten Dunst (Camille) and Viggo Mortensen in a brilliant raspy voice set Old Bull Lee aka William S. Burroughs. It’s almost a shame that our critics think that On the Road is of a middle of the road quality. Click the image to enlarge!
