The trailer shows scenes not in the final version of the film. These seem to include scenes with Jack Kerouac and others from New York appearing only in brief flashback in the film. As well, a scene of William Burroughs reading a newspaper story to Joan about a fire at a zoo. The phrase "and the hippos were boiled in their tanks" which comes from this story was the title of the unpublished novel by Kerouac and Burroughs about the David Kammerer murder. See more »

really, quite an appallingly modern performance of the story of william s. burrough's ill-fated wife, joan. the entire cast is horridly miscast while courtney love turns in an offensively bad performance as joan (oh, she was a vacuous vamp? well that would explain her involvement in the literary scene). it's as if the characters from friends dressed up and tried to understand beat poetry - no nuance, no understanding, and apparently little historical research. unless you like the beats and enjoy torturing yourself, this movie is a big miss.
