Watched in June 2010 I've never read Howl or really have had muchinterest in Allen Ginsberg, but having seen this delight of a film,things have changed.The film takes a look at several key moments in Ginsbergs life. In B&Wwe see Ginsberg recite his poem Howl: there are also insights into hisfriendsh...
I was lucky to watch this movie at the Athens Film Festival lastSaturday and, despite its occasional flaws, I loved it. Ginsberg isfairly known to Greece , though most people (myself included) got toknow him through his connection with Dylan. In that sense, I wasn'tfamiliar with HOWL or the obscenit...
Howl was an interesting look into the life of Allen Ginsberg. The moviewas mainly about the trial that questioned whether or not Ginsberg'spoem, "Howl" was too obscene. However, there were brief bits whereJames Franco as Ginsberg was being interviewed about his personal life. I felt that the animati...
I'm surprised that this film worked as well as it did, and that it hasbeen received as well as it has here. I read Howl about 5 years afterGinsberg wrote it, when I was in high school, and, like it or not, itbecame part of my thinking in the fifty years since then. Still in highschool, I could quote...
In 1955 Allan Ginsberg sat in a cafe in Berkeley California and wrote apoem. He was asked to perform the poem at a reading and at firstrefused, but changed his mind after completing a rough draft of Howl.The poem was published and confiscated when it went through customsafter being printed in London...
I can honestly say that I watched this entire movie with a verycritical literary and historical eye as well as from the standpoint ofa filmologist. Even before I read all the other reviews and watched itI was plotting what to write in this review. As a work of art, "Howl"the movie, is a decent piece...
This is a brilliant film. I have not seen a another film thatsuccessfully shows how someone creates a work of art, especially aliterary work. This film does it brilliantly, largely by quotationsfrom the poem read very effectively by James Franco, who playsGinsberg. Acted out interviews illuminate ma...
Wonderfully evocative faux-documentary that showcases the poem. Theanimation sequences stick close to the literal denotation of thetextual images. Some have found that approach unsympathetic, but Idisagree. Part of what I love about the poem is its twisting ofbanality into surrealist mysticism (Plot...
Poetry can seriously damage your health. That's the main thing I'velearned from recent biopics in which Johnny Depp's pox-ridden JohnWilmot (The Libertine), Ben Whishaw's consumptive Keats (Bright Star)and Gwyneth Paltrow's depressive Sylvia Plath (Sylvia) have corneredthe market in self-destructive...
Howl might be a one-of-a-kind film experience if not for Chicago 10,another film that blended documentary, dramatization and animationtogether into a blender of personal history. But what sets this filmapart from that and all others is that poetry becomes interwoven into acourtroom trial procedural ...
Allen Ginsberg's poem Howl is brought to life with a mix of adultanimation, court-room drama and the beliefs of a young hero of sorts.Ginsberg represented the new generation of the young, confusednonconformists and he wrote poetry that ignited the wrath of the oldergeneration that rejected their fre...
Howl is a great poem; Howl is a weak movie. If you want to be talked atfor 90 minutes, then maybe you'll find it edifying, but to be honest, Ifound that this film took some really interesting people, a reallyinteresting moment and a really important poem and turned them intowords, words, words. I wo...
The film starts with the interesting claim that every word spoken wasactually spoken.The film isn't a documentary, though it is very similar to one. Itcenters on several key events so that no dialog needs to be addedbeyond the historical. A reading of "Howl", the obscenity trial, andtwo interviews. ...
Epstein and Friedman's depiction of Allen Ginsberg's poem Howl is verywell developed and although its progression of the message was slow andnot to easy to follow at some points, it kept me satisfyingly intriguedthroughout. They help you to understand what Howl as a poem trulyrepresents, aside from ...
Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's 'Howl' is an interesting andhumorous depiction of the 1957 trial regarding Allen Ginsberg'scontroversial poem 'Howl'. In between the trial we are given glimpsesof Ginsberg's life (in black and white) and an interview with him. Theblack and white sequences are beaut...
i've never read Ginsberg's 'Howl'. heard a lot about it and amdefinitely curious, but i never get around to that one. i also thinkmaybe i'm a little put off by the gay "beat" poets of the fifties andsixties. too much waxing that often feels more about the process ofthinking than anything else. if li...
If it weren't for James Franco's winning involvement, this biopic wouldbe less of a howl and more of a whimper. The film is a combination ofthree strands: the 1957 obscenity trail for publisher LawrenceFerlinghetti of City Lights bookshop; a candid interview with the poethimself; and Franco/Ginsberg...
HOWL is a well-chosen name for this excellent movie. Yes, it indeed isa study of the creator of that significant poem - Allen Ginsberg - butthe film seems to be more focused on bringing the audience to a levelof appreciation of the impact that particular poem had on the world -of censorship, of brin...
Was only a kid when all this happened but ten years later saw and heardGinsberg read Howl at the Unitarian Church on Arlington Street inBoston. I remember how well the reading was received even ten yearsafter publication. The movie will remind us all what a wonderful workHowl was and continues to be...
about freedom, words force, fear, solitude and a subtle form ofrevolution. a film who seduce not exactly for story itself but for itsspirit. because the mixture of animation, performance of James Francowho preserves not only the spirit of the period but the faith of poetas mentor gives special seduc...
I had heard that Daniel Radcliffe was going to play young gay poetAllen Ginsberg in his next film Kill Your Darlings, and when I foundout that this film was about him, and his most celebrated but alsocontroversial poem, I was intrigued to see what it would be like.Basically, set in 1957, San Francis...
Inspired by the Allan Ginsberg poem of the same name, HOWL shows theeponymous hero (James Franco) reading the work out lout to a group offellow-poets in San Francisco. The work obviously inspired extremepassions: the audience listen in rapt attention to a work that depictsthe poet's feelings through...
One of the main arguments in Ginsberg's defense during his trial wasthat dissecting "Howl" line-by-line with the intent of extracting exactprose and literal meaning is a perversion of its existence and themethod of which it was written. My question is; wasn't the decision touse illustrations, which ...
Probably nothing symbolizes the beatnik era more than Allen Ginsberg'spoem "Howl", not just because of its subject matter but also because ofthe obscenity trial that it sparked. Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman'smovie "Howl" tells the story of this. The film consists of threeinterspersed sequences: ...
'Howl (2010)' is an offbeat experimental historical film about AllenGinsberg's 1956 poem "Howl," the subject of a highly-publicisedobscenity trial on its initial publication. James Franco playsGinsberg, the reluctantly homosexual poet who poured his fears andfrustrations into a four-part magnum opus...
