A vividly imaginative film
6 August 2005 | by (Cleveland, Ohio, United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think it takes a breadth of knowledge about the beats and Kerouac to really appreciate the creativity that flows colorfully from this film. Vincent Balestri is magic in the making here. He delivers such a lively and poignant performance that Kerouac himself would approve. The idea behind the film is pretty interesting, but the indie quality of the shots, particularly the low- budget sound, work against the power and force behind the voices giving their performance. However, this film does not disappoint, and my only request is that it will be released to a wider audience, either through a physical media (VHS, DVD) or as a certain instant-hit online as a indie beat movie that is freely distributable and exchangeable. There is no question in my mind that this would launch the national careers of the men and women in this film.
