Manchester film reviews

The Road Film

The Road

reviewed by Dave Porter


The Road came swathed in such adulatory praise, it leaves the ordinary cinemagoer in a difficult position: if everyone says it’s good, then it must be. Right?


Well, only half right on this occasion. Author Cormac McCarthy – on whose book the film is predicated – is renowned for his grimy portrayals of cowboy life on the US-Mexican borders. The swathe of colour he draws his characters and places produces breathtaking literature.

For venues looking to be reviewed, it's obviously best that reviews are conducted in a similar way to an internal quality audit or mystery shopper approach, but the scope of the review is really to go beyond whether the diner was asked open questions by staff etc, to try and deal with issues of fashion around the eating experience and how social norms are impacting of the experience like time limited seating slots etc. Probably the best way to acheive this is if a venue sends in a complimentary offer letter for meal for two in say the fortnight following the date the letter sent. We can then try and solicit a reviewer from the site to conduct the review.
