The spirit of Jack Kerouac returns to right some wrongs
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vince Balestri's portrayal of Jack Kerouac is riveting, moving and just plan fun. I'm told he performed a one-man stage show of Kerouac for years before doing this film,and it shows. Frank Tabbitta plays a disillusioned writer on the brink of selling out when he is visiting by a stranger who, miraculously appears to be Jack Kerouac. The story is simple and sometimes a little too "low budget" looking. I wish the print I saw was of better quality. Perhaps that's why this film hasn't been in wider release. Yet, you can tell this little indie gem is a labor of love. Again, Balestri's portrayal is well worth seeing. He brings Kerouac to life. I just want to know: when will it be released to a wider audience?
