I enjoyed Big Sur, but not as much as Dharma Bums.
Big Sur was a look into the unraveling sorrow of Kerouac’s later prime years after the earlier escalated hope when he and Gary Snyder had climbed up the Matterhorn.
This new film travels back to the old Kerouacian haunts of NYC and SF as well as to Ferlinghetti’s cabin at Big Sur. If you’ve been up to that area of California, you might know its utter beauty, as I think Kerouac saw and was so drowned into.
