Film description

Even before Jack Kerouac went On the Road, William S. Burroughs ate his Naked Lunch, and Allen Ginsberg transgressed it all with his Howl, beatniks in tidy sweaters ambled politely through universities carrying the Classics under their arms, but even they yearned to free literature from the yoke of sclerotic convention. John Krokidas uncompromisingly shows these young revolutionaries solely from their own perspective rather than that of a partial observer. A musical free-for-all and a galloping montage of associations offers an unanesthetized view of the movement’s feverish energy where visions born of ravenous use of booze and acid fluidly morph into a legend fiendishly propounded by lyrical anarchists.
