Howl: The Movie

March 21, 2011

Since I just linked to the original Howl poem, I thought it was only fair to mention the recent film based on a performance of the poem by Allen Ginsberg, directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, and starring James Franco. The film got a bit slammed by the mainstream critics who quite rightly pointed out that it was difficult to make an engaging film based entirely and exclusively on a single poetry reading, but it seemed pretty popular with the film festivals and Franco’s performance has had typically good write-ups.
