On the watch list No.3 …………………. Howl

Allen Ginsgerg, the God father of beat poetry & 60’s Civil rights activist, has finally been canonized on celluloid. I’m not sure how I feel about this movie based on the trailer, although I like james Franco (pineapple express is highly underrated) I doubt this subject matter will feel that authentic when translated into a Hollywood dramatization – See “Walk the line” as evidence of my concern.

Hopefully this renewed interest from the popular culture zeitgeist, will see BBC4 make a documentary on the subject…

  1. I wasn’t aware of this. It looks great to me. I like Ginsberg and Pineapple Express. Love Howl. Floating across tenement roofs contemplating jazz
