ON THE ROAD, SOMEWHERE REVIEWED
“On the Road, Somewhere” plays like if someone wanted to make a PG-13 “Yu Mama Tambien”. There’s a lot of camaraderie between the three friends, sex talk comes up and there is a pressing sense of finality to the venture. Still, it’s weird to have to have an American audience project themselves onto an international tale like this. Sure, young love and desperately trying to prove yourself is universal. It’s just that for a film that only runs 71 minutes, it feels about 41 minutes longer than needed.
Short films aren’t a bad. Play to the length of the narrative, rather than stretching to hit what feels like feature length material. Spinning your wheels doesn’t benefit anyone. Still, I liked the movie.
