What I've been watching: The Road

Cormac McCarthy’s The Road is an amazing piece of fiction. How he was able to make a story of a man and a boy walking across a post-apocalyptic, desolate earth and make it interesting says a lot about his skill as a writer. In the film, the director has succeeded in creating the same fascination, the same empathy as the book. This one is definitely a winner, but keep your handkerchief handy.
