I’m not about to pretend I know the first thing Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster), Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) or the Beat movement. Poetry ain’t my bag, man. I do, however, know a stellar cast when I see one and a film bucking for Oscar nods as well.
Word from the festivals is that the movie is amazing and Radcliffe is spectacular. And as you can tell from the trailer where they quote us (no, that’s cool trailer makers, we didn’t want you to spell the site name right anyway) we liked it too. The trailer does seem to leave a bit lacking as it focuses on the plot and not the reportedly subtle performances and direction. Then again, trailers need to get butts in the theater so it’s doing its job.[via Yahoo!]
