Big Sur: Sudden fame and a self-destructive lifestyle were taking a toll on Jack Kerouac's mind and body following the unparalleled success of the groundbreaking novel, On The Road. Once the handsome literary maverick and hero of the Beat Generation, Kerouac now sees only a vestige of his former self, ravaged by alcohol and drugs, aged beyond his years and tormented by self-doubt. Questioning his talent, his faith, and his mortality, Kerouac leaves New York for California, on a quest for redemption at an isolated, fog-banked cabin in the primitive landscape of the Big Sur woods. What ensues in those fateful 3 weeks of August, 1960, is both terrifying and revelatory. While Kerouac is able to find beauty and elation in his surroundings, the dichotomy of his psyche renders him unable to face his demons alone. He sets off on a visceral collision course of paranoia, sex, delirium tremens, misery and madness. His desperation culminates in an intense, hallucinatory breakdown, but the duality of his ...

A bold, and probably one of the more successful, attempts at bringing Kerouac to the screen, brought to life by a strong lead and supporting cast. The only flaw is the quantity of narration, though it helps with establishing Kerouac's mindset and spirit, it overwhelms leaving no room for interpretation. A minor flaw in an otherwise enjoyable film.

Got drunk and fell asleep while watching this movie. Then I watched it again to see what I had missed. I'm glad I did. Our culture is still feeling the impact, even today, from the Beats.

jack Kerouac reminds me a lot of myself in this movie.. aside from the whole 'rich and famous thing' of course.. but I can feel his pain.. 5/5 stars

Drove six to eight times up or down Pacific Coast Highway through Big Sur always haunted by Kerouac's words which like fog came in and out of my consciousness hiding or clearing all intentions and such is the vastness of water and sky in that particular stretch I always felt lost..... this is a good example of what can now be defined a period piece,a tribute to the Beat Generation,a great book and a revolutionary new freedom in expressing your thoughts....4/5.
