The Road Movie

The_road_bleak_scenery

Perhaps this isn’t news to you, but for me, yes. Somehow I didn’t mind the Coens making art out of lesser McCarthy, but I’m uncomfortable with this. I guess at this point it just feels like bandwagoning.

. . . updateing to clarify: No Country is the one I’m referring to as lesser McCarthy. I have quite the regard for The Road, and if you don’t believe me, then you should read this.

Lesser? Really? I’m not sure I agree.

I’m also not convinced it’s lesser. What are your objections/misgivings?

I believe Scott is referring to No Country For Old Men which I agree is near the dross of McCarthy’s output.

Ah yes, I see. Misunderstood this to say that The Road was the lesser work.
