This movie reminded me of Jim Morrison's life. Key issues that came up were: getting inspiration to write, staying motivated and staying true to yourself. I liked the strings of poetry that were read and seeing some top poets talk about their experiences. All in all I thought it was an educational and fun movie to watch. If you want to understand the real definition of the Beat generation - this would be a great movie to watch. It has a documentary style, funky jazz background music and footage of Jack Kerouac. There is some philosophical subject matter which is still true today - and it makes you think about life and its purpose.
