didn't expect it to be optimistic, in fact i expected to be sad at the end but i wasn't. just wished something more would have happened, all in all it was alright

To his defense, Trump didn't even really look like a bum.

You were probably so beaten down by the difficult and depressing to put the optimism in perspective. This is the best explanation I've read, given by author Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Shutter Island) that should help clarify the point of The Road:

a portion of his commentary:
quote:
Stealing across this horrific (and that's the only word for it) landscape are an unnamed man and his emaciated son, a boy probably around the age of ten. It is the love the father feels for his son, a love as deep and acute as his grief, that could surprise readers of McCarthy's previous work. McCarthy's Gnostic impressions of mankind have left very little place for love. In fact that greatest love affair in any of his novels, I would argue, occurs between the Billy Parham and the wolf in The Crossing.

But here the love of a desperate father for his sickly son transcends all else. McCarthy has always written about the battle between light and darkness; the darkness usually comprises 99.9% of the world, while any illumination is the weak shaft thrown by a penlight running low on batteries. In The Road, those batteries are almost out--the entire world is, quite literally, dying--so the final affirmation of hope in the novel's closing pages is all the more shocking and maybe all the more enduring as the boy takes all of his father's (and McCarthy's) rage at the hopeless folly of man and lays it down, lifting up, in its place, the oddest of all things: faith.

that's the point of the novel though, which was fantastic. The film's shit.

Cormac Mccarthy is a genius i tells ya! The film version was shit, and ruined the brilliant simplicity of the book imo.

the chasm between the book and the movie was that wide? I haven't read the book so obviously I can't comment, but I can see in the movie the description Dennis Lehane described.

In terms of depravity, I can say that the film one up'd my imagination quite a few times.

I once tried watching it and turned it off again after some time. Things were just getting too gross and disgusting for me to enjoy that movie.

+1....i couldn't get through it. i'm generally not to bad with things like that either. it was just too much.
last night i was watching a masters of horror episode (cigarette burns) that involved some depraved movie that drove those who watched it to madness. i couldn't help but thing "it must've been pretty similar to 120 days of sodom..."
