Movie synopsis: After the enormous success of On the Road, a novel that became the Beat Generation's Bible, Kerouac had a problem dealing with fame, advancing age and alcoholism. Big Sur is a prose which depicts his trips to the West Coast, to the cabin where his friend, the poet Laurence Ferlinghetti, used to stay. Like the novel, the film adaptation primarily captures the inner journey. The introspective picture draws not only from the novel's swift narrative style, but also uses the power of cinematic imagery, filling the screen with the monumental scenery of oceans, forests and sky. Above all, it shows that the Beatnik lifestyle is not just freedom, drugs and the wind in your hair. A drama full of desperation, depression and poetry.
