Quite simply one of the worst films ever.
4 June 2002 | by (Seattle, Washingon) – See all my reviews

Jol (The Road) is an incomprehensible, pretentious and just plain awful film. The premise is simple, a film director is taking a trip to visit his sick mother and we are privy to his thoughts and encounters along the way. These thoughts range from a black and white film where one man shoots everyone, to his fantasies about a waitress at a diner he visits. Instead of providing insight these events provide boredom and the occasional thought of what you could be doing instead of watching this film. I will admit that the black and white sections of the film did look good, but that is a small condolence for this waste of celluloid.
