Genre: Documentary

Keywords: Art & Artists

A documentary on the Beats and the major characters of that movement. Nominated for Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Festival. From Janet Maslin's New York Times review: "a stirring, kaleidoscopic documentary about the Beat generation and its legacy, spans from the exultant 1940s photo of the young friends of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs to the Jeopardy show on which contestants could win money by asking Who were the Beats? "It's eternity all the time, so there's no point being nostalgic for eternity,' Ginsberg is heard saying. But that wisdom runs counter to the moving experience of watching this film unfold."
