What a let down. This is some sort of re-cut version, not the theatrical version that I seen. Censored and re-cut. Hopefully there will be an unrated version released. I feel cheated. Not recommended.

Cut version - do NOT buy if you are expecting the full version
The title basically says it all. I have seen at least two other reviews that mentioned this, but not enough. The version you buy here is NOT the full version, but CUT. If you want the full version, do NOT buy this and waste your money. Hopefully, an uncut version will eventually come out in the future, but until then, only buy this if you do not mind that it has been cut.

On The Road and into the Roadside Gutter.
Not having read the book, I'm not too sure if the auteurs of the Beat Generation lived their lives in similar fashion as Kerouac. Unfortunately, this film had no likable or interesting characters and their road trip adventures including their lives ended up like a brake-worn roadkill...contrary to those fans who have romanticized the values and esoterics of this Beat era into the film's failed attempts. Performance-wise any noteworthy scenes are few and lacks memorable sustainability. This includes Garret Hedlund's yawn-filled man-on-man action.
