Movie Review: The Road

I had no interest in seeing The Road in theaters when it came out, and it wasn’t even a Netflix title for me.  I happened to DVR it on HBO and watched it in chunks… because it was absurdly long and draining.  It gets the award for most depressing film of the last few years.  I can see why no one went to see this.  It is so drab and gray and desolate – but with no upside for the viewer.  I understand the painstaking detail in the cinematography and it was beautiful in the way it was shot, but it was just too much… and since nothing actually happens in the film it was ultimately pointless.
