Give a whole year of MUBI and get a free month for you.
Jack Kerouac and friends go through several decades of American history, and find themselves affecting the culture.
There's nothing beatnik in this movie. It's just a long and boring marriage discussion with non-charismatic characters that do not represent real Jack, Neal and Carolyn.
Solid performances from Nolte, Spacek and Heard, but the story is unexpectedly jejune.
Gives you an insight on the Kerouac-Cassady-relation. Though it's party bases on Carolyn's own book, it doesn't feel real.
