From Gay Essential

Released in 2010, Howl is an American experimental film which explores both the Six Gallery debut and the 1957 obscenity trial of 20th-century American poet Allen Ginsberg's noted poem Howl. Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and shot in New York City, the film stars James Franco and Andrew Rogers. Read More Here

“Intelligent and highly respectful of its central character and his titular landmark poem, HOWL is an admirable if fundamentally academic exploration of the origins, impact, meaning and legacy of Allen Ginsberg's signal work.”
   Todd McCarthy, Variety

“This film is a wonderful act of imagination on its own.”
   Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic

“By the time this movie's over, you've spent an hour and a half just working your way through the words of Howl and some related source material, and that turns out to be a surprisingly satisfying thing to do.”
   Dana Stevens, Slate

  1. :

    I really like James Franco and am fascinated by the beat generation era but I was a little wary because of the poetry content and how much of it i would able to grasp. Worry aside as there is visual animation to help you grasp the meaning behind the words.
    The structure of the film is interesting, split up into sections of descriptive animation, the obscenity court case that the poem faced, an interview with Ginsberg himself and endearing flashbacks of the past whilst Ginsberg talks about it.
    Howl i a real gem of a film, something quite unique.
