Just seen the post-apocalyptic Vigo Mortensen film that’s been nominated for this, that and the other. What depressing fare. Although levels of depression would be at an all time high come the apocalyse, I’d like to think there’d still be moments of irony, humour, passion and ingenuity. Not in this film!
Take my advice and watch the Book of Eli (Denzel Washington) instead. Curiously, there’s a character in The Road called Eli – some sort of ‘nod’ to the original inspiration by the writer? Anyway, The Road gets a dismal 6/10 from me.
