The film On the Road, from Jack Kerouac's novel, will be out next week - even though critics said it was unfilmable

Dude, where's my radical bohemian rush?

Jack Kerouac's cult novel On the Road, first published in 1957, has sold more than 10 million copies but has never before been filmed. After watching this Walter Salles-directed adaptation, you begin to understand why. The very term "cult novel" seems to include within it a warning to film-makers: don't go there. And the warning is always ignored. No doubt the book will still have many eager readers to come, but it's hard not to feel that this film will have chipped away some of its cultish glamour. The problem with "the romance of the road" is that so many movies in the last 40 years have gone there, most of them chasing the tail exhaust of Easy Rider in 1969. This adaptation, however faithful it may be to the book, looks awfully tame in 2012.
