Kerouac's On the Road, Finally on Film

Wikipedia entry: "On the Road", the film


On the road in Lowell

Blues Pilgrimages

Kerouac's Blues

UK release date, September 21st 2012


Finally seen it on DVD. Rather disappointed, although I enjoyed some snatches of song on the soundtrack, blues songs by Bukka White and Son House, some jazz by Charlie Parker, and Kerouac himself singing "Home I'll Never Be". Some great shots of the road, landscape, and of cotton-picking. Good attention to the period.
