The Mixed Tape


The Road. by Nolan Wilson Goff

Last night we had the chance to catch a pre-release screeening of The Road, starring Viggo Mortensen. Following the screening, Viggo, director John Hillcoat, and screenwriter Joe Penhall participated in a Q&A, which brought further clarity to the film.

The Road is the best film of 2009 (so far), in large part due to its emotional density and characters. The film has its flaws, but no other film (The Lovely Bones, Invictus, and Brothers could be exceptions) will reach the emotional levels of The Road.

There is no way we can discuss the density of Cormac McCarthy’s masterful story in just one post.

Therefore, over the next week we will take an in depth look at the various astounding elements of The Road.
