"The Road"

The movie was better than the critical consensus, but as was the case with No Country For Old Men, there are certain authors who just shouldn't be transferred to film. Cormac McCarthy is one. His books are far too open to interpretation and imagination. Not every piece of art has to have a finite meaning. Actually, good art shouldn't have it at all, aside from perhaps how we see/view/experience it. No Country For Old Men and The Road are both phenomenal books. They should've been left that way. I'm set to read Blood Meridian in the coming weeks. If I love it as much as those mentioned, and it goes to screen, I'll have learned my lesson.

Despite how grating Oprah is in everything she says, this interview is worth watching. It's in seven parts so keep watching after the first segment.
