Shocked at the negative reviews here. This is by far the best documentary on the beats.
March 30, 2012
Likeable documentary about a Beat Generation hotspot that makes you want to pack up your laptop and write away in some cheap garret with a shared toilet.
March 29, 2012
Well-edited and mildly engaging, but it barely scratches the surface of its subject matter.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.0/10
April 4, 2012
Never amounts to more than a flabby piece of counterculture nostalgia.
March 30, 2012
Mr. Govenar's textbook history of the scene (from around 1957 to 1963) is twinklingly delivered by surviving former residents and scholarly chroniclers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 29, 2012
Impressionistic documentary about the temporary Parisian home of the Beat writers fails to justify its full-length running time.
March 28, 2012
The Beat Hotel was but one of many domiciles, too small to possess anything but their ephemeral bodies.

[Scales] new heights of inessentiality...
