An adaptation of American literary icon Jack Kerouac's novel of the same name, BIG SUR focuses on a moment in Kerouac's life when, overwhelmed by the success of his opus On the Road and struggling to battle inner demons, he seeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in the small, coastal California town of Big Sur. Michael Polish's film is at once a poetic meditation and a love-letter to the work of an author who defined the Beat Generation

What a bummer. The actors seemingly did a good job of visually representing their characters. "Kill your heroes"? Yeah, sure; but I'd rather reread the book. Problem is, now I'll have the memory of this debacle as a focus and lose the joy of it.... And is this a true image of the actual people? If so - so what? Leave my imagination alone. Viewer beware.

Depressing, dark movie! Not much saving grace there! Some characters were good. As a whole, though, not that good.

A drunken' mish mash. Lots of storm n' drang,..but not much elucidation of creativity. Boozy partying doesn't seem as 'beat' or unconventional as it used to !
