This grungy short really isn't so wonderful, beyond the intrigue of seeing the young Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky and Gregory Corso kicking back in an informal setting. The bulk of the film (it's about 27 minutes) involves the unlikely visit of a bishop to a squalid apartment, and the poets jabbing at him with playful, subversive questions. There's a lot of banter about what is "holy." Jack Kerouac narrates, often dubbing the words of the onscreen cast.

Note: The host's wife is credited as "Beltiane," but this is actually an early appearance of international star Delphine Seyrig.

Bohemian Beatnik Seinfeld.

The stove in the cockroach "scene" reminds me of Thu Tran's Food Party.
