Review of The Road Movie (Cormac McCarthy)

From an anonymous but convincing commenter comes this early review of The Road - the film adapted from Cormac McCarthy's amazing book (you should really, really read it):

I was in the first audience to see this movie at a screening last night 10/15/08 in NYC. I knew nothing about the book or the movie coming into this.

This was the most amazing movie I have seen in a long time. It's very intense and the audience were literally on the edge of their seats from the beginning to the end. The desperate hopelessness was palpable from the screen. Even the men were sniffling at some point. Some of the scenes were disturbing and violent but not gratuitously so, they were necessary to move the story along. All the actors in the movie needs to get an Oscar. This should win for best movie.

Hey, I just saw your comment on one of my older blog posts. Sorry I didn't respond before. I'm afraid you'll have to visit us here in Laos to get some of our coffee beans. Hopefully in a couple years we'll be selling in the States. Keep in touch!
