Howl

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Going to the cinema this weekend?  Howl is a must see.  Named after the poem written by Allen Ginsberg in 1955 the film consists of three strands: Ginsberg talking about his life and work, the obscenity trial of the work, and an animation that echoes the surreal style of the poem which is thought to be one of the great works of the Beat Generation.  Set in 1957 San Francisco it is no surprise great 50s style frames are worn throughout by the stellar cast.
