Easily Best Film Ever Made About The Beats
21 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I wouldn't call this movie a biopic. More like an old fashioned moral fable or a dime store story based on the later years of Kerouac's muse, Neal Cassady. It shifts from pulp to poem to 50's melodrama to soap opera to comic book style to realism. More than being about Cowboy Neal, it's about mythology. And what happens to real people when myth status is hoisted upon them. Like an episode of the Twilight Zone, the answers to these questions come in all kinds of forms and often upside-down.

Tate Donovan has never ever been this swinging. The rest of the cast is very stellar also. Like True Blood's Andy as Ken Kesey. And of course, Amy Ryan.

Glenn Fitzgerald wouldn't have been my pick as Jack, but he actually comes through by the end. He brings out more of the poet Jack, less of the lumberjack. Kind of like if Monty Clift had played Kerouac.
