Beat Junkeration
18 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie reeks.

It is a stinker.

It fails.

As someone who found his way to "literature" through "the beats", this movie really let me down. It felt more like Beavis & Butthead.

I did not believe a single scene or a single syllable of it. I know I am being harsh, but if you are going to play beatnik icons, then you better do it right and you better know what you are doing.

I will say this, in order to be positive, they tried. All of them. Everyone involved gives it a shot, but it lacks authenticity. It is tough reaching for the impossible. It is hard to combine awesome poetry with massive drug use. Few actors could pull it off and these simply don't. Everything falls flat. All of it. One missed opportunity after another! There was a glory to their story and there was a sadness too. There is inspiration and depression, muses and despair, but this film floats somewhere in limbo not going anywhere.

I wanted to like it. I watched it hoping it would be what it just isn't.

I painfully await the movie version of ON THE ROAD. And beg the gods for mercy!
