Before you could say "Jack Kerouac" / you'd turn your back and I'd be gone ...

Jack Kerouac would have been 90 today.

Here’s the trailer for ‘On the Road’:

Not sure how I feel about it, nor about Walter Salles being at the helm (I was distinctly underwhelmed by ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’) but Jesus H Christ, that’s some cast!

I actually quite liked THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES and from what I've seen in the trailer, so far so good. I like the look and mood. I was worried about the casting of Garrett Hedlund as Dean but he looks and sounds good! I am worried about how much time they're going to give Kristen Stewart. The character she plays barely figures in the novel and I fear that they are going to pump up her role because of her legions of fans.

I do like that Salles has taken his time with this film. This certainly isn't a rush job and from what I've read he and the cast did extensive research and talked to a lot of people who knew Kerouac and Cassidy.

We shall see...
