Mr. Govenar's textbook history of the scene (from around 1957 to 1963) is twinklingly delivered by surviving former residents and scholarly chroniclers.

The Beat Hotel was but one of many domiciles, too small to possess anything but their ephemeral bodies.

Never amounts to more than a flabby piece of counterculture nostalgia.

Well-edited and mildly engaging, but it barely scratches the surface of its subject matter.

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.

Shocked at the negative reviews here. This is by far the best documentary on the beats.
