Holy Holy Holy

Wandering Los Angeles of a saturday night, I just saw the astonishingly moving Allen Ginsberg biopic, 'Howl', written and directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. One always appreciates it when an artist uses their work to educate people, but I feel even more grateful when art is used to induce a state. That's what Ginsberg's epic poem does, and what this film does, too. I know there are some who believe there will be 72 virgins waiting for them in heaven (who, by the way, will be crap in bed, being virgins). I just say: may we all be played by James Franco after our deaths.

LMAO :) So true...
 
Hey Em
I'd never heard of Alan Ginsberg before.Unfortunately, I don't think the movie will be released here.

You-tubed him, what a syrupy voice!
 
What do you think of the whole James Franco-as-soap-star-as-conceptual-artist-as-soap-star shenanigans?
 
hello Dear Emma,
I have a question regarding the movie Liars (A-E). Is the script based on the autobiographical threads?
How long-lasting preparations for the production?
When the pruduction begin?
Who will play major roles besides Rebecca Hall?
