I really did look forward to seeing this but honestly, this film did not live up to it's potential. The acting was fine, the story was fine, the music was mostly fine. It was an ordinary film when it could have have been so much more considering how fascinating the beat culture really was.

I kid you not I went straight to the library and picked up as much Ginsberg, Kerouac, and Burroughs as was available to me - it's been years since On the Road and I haven't read a lot of the others. This movie is awesome. It's like the Dead Poets Society for radicals - and then one of the group does end up dead. It's not a mystery so much as a tale of, as the cover says, obsession. Allen is taken with Lucien, Lucien is better at making people extraordinary than being so himself (and it making said extraordinary people do things for him).

The period is done well, the acting is superb. If the Beat poets are your thing you are in for a treat here.

Anyone interested in the Beat writers would enjoy this film. I thought the use of contemporary music was a little jarring but Ben Foster's performance as William S. Burroughs was very good.
