    When I went to see The Road, there were a bunch of "lads" behind me. One of the opening shots in the film is of a road and one of them asks: "Is that THE road?"

    There was a whole section in the middle where the various timelines were being intercut very very quickly all to the Inception sound, that really irritated me.

    I was thinking - this is three average stories chopped up with some added Hans Zimmer for irritation.

    Yet

    I've been thinking about it a lot. And I think I'm going to like it more after another couple of views.

    For a film with little exposition and action from the start...it still seems rather plotless somehow. I guess that was his objective?

    Churchill's fight them on the beaches speech
    Read by a kid
    To the tune of Zimmer's Elgar.
    I had something in my eye around then.
    And I'm not even fucking British

    I found the whole timeline thing really confusing at the start. And again at the end;
    just how long was that plane in flight with no fuel?
