Great Indie That Slipped Thru Cracks
9 September 2011 | by lexfortuneSee all my reviews

Some movies seem to slip through the cracks. This is one of them. The main reason is probably because it is very low budget. But the performances are great and the music is wonderful and the overall feeling of the movie is fairly majestic. I would recommend this movie over any other Beat film I've seen.

I honestly had no idea Tate Donovan could act, but I guess he really can. Amy Ryan is what we've come to expect. The writer/director's take on Cassady is very dark but from what I've read right on the money.

The top reason to see the movie is to see Glenn Fitzgerald's take on Jack Kerouac. Nice to see actresses like Shareeka Epps and Paz de la Huerta here and there.
