Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Exactly what its sardonic, trail-blazing, brilliant subject was not: square.

There's little here for those who know the story.

Film Journal International

A lot of the information is redundant and the pacing is quite leisurely, to put it mildly.

Movie Metropolis

Commentators who couldn't take flower power or Buddhist chants or even poetry seriously were doomed to underestimate (Ginsberg's) resolve time and again.

Comprehensive bio-pic of the Beat Generation poet best remembered for 'Howl' the epic poem which opens with the immortal line, 'I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness.' Cool, Daddy-O!

Combustible Celluloid

For this double-disc DVD release, director Aronson has assembled a wealth of extra footage, much of it more interesting and revealing than the movie itself.

His readings of his own work are especially thoughtful, moving, and provocative in the best possible ways.

A must-see movie for anyone with an interest in modern poetry generally or in Ginsberg specifically.

While it doesn't expose new sides of this familiar intellectual icon, it provides us generous views of the man in action.

Not the last word on the noted Jewish poet: Considering Ginsberg's flamboyant and complex personality and the intriguing writers-artists in his life, Jerry Aronson's documentary is disappointingly conventional.
