  • ΞRIC B∆Ɖ TASTΞ's rating of the film Beat

    i don't know much about the Beat Generation. but for me it was pretty shame that this movie is more about the beginning of the life of some of the BG, before they came really into "famous" writers - it's very stunning how ppl can change, although they had a life near the abyss... but the movie has very good acting & wasn't a bad entertainment - anyway, i'm looking forward for the movie "On the Road" !
