TotalFilm # 30 On the Road
The Talent: Walter Salles (director), Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart.
El Paso: Adaptation of the classic Jack Kerouac's Beat novel, the story of a teenager 50 years Sal Paradise, which connects with the spirit of Dean Moriarty in a free cross-country, cultural, road trip-meter.
The hook: One of the great novels filmed, Salles (no stranger to road movies after The Motorcycle Diaries)
acknowledges that he has broken, in part to retrace the actual data path in the documentary companion piece, looking at the road.
