Movie Info

In this definitive documentary, director Christopher Felver crafts an incisive, sharply wrought portrait that reveals Ferlinghetti's true role as catalyst for numerous literary careers and for the Beat movement itself. One-on-one interviews with Ferlinghetti, made over the course of a decade, touch upon a rich mélange of characters and events that began to unfold in postwar America. These events include the publication of Allen Ginsberg's Howl, William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch, and Jack … More

Critic Reviews for Ferlinghetti A Rebirth of Wonder

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

His contribution to the culture of American letters is undeniable, and City Lights -- the store and the imprint -- could well be the closest thing to a literary shrine that we possess.

Christian Science Monitor
Top Critic

With Americans' civil liberties under constant threat, it's comforting to know that Ferlinghetti is still with us.

New York Post
Top Critic

This biography is often effusive in its praise, but some lives and legacies were meant for a tribute.

New York Times
Top Critic

Sadly, the film gets mired in traditionalism, something the man himself always railed against.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

This affectionate documentary doesn't do full justice to its important subject.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Maybe it's time to mandate a preliminary aptitude test for documentarians, just to weed out the uninspired time-wasters.

A loving tribute to a man who taught my generation to worship art rather than mammon.

Christopher Felver is too reverent to properly convey the invigoratingly profane, angry messiness of the sense of community that Lawrence Ferlinghetti and his peers too briefly brought to life.

Full Review… | February 8, 2013
Slant Magazine

Loving documentary about one of the greatest, and still wonderfully extant, poetic and political forces of our time.

Full Review… | February 7, 2013
Film Journal International

A tribute to poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti as a creator and nurturer of wonder.

Full Review… | February 7, 2013
Spirituality and Practice

Explores what exactly people have been hungry for that the poet has touched in them for over half a century, and fed their souls. And whether or not this filmmaker's quest has perhaps unleashed his inner stalker. At least according to Ferlinghetti.
