AroView: A fitting celebration and account of the making and hostile reception of Allen Ginsberg’s famously controversial poem, with James Franco superb as the youthful beat poet of the 1950’s.

Lovingly crafted by gay culture documentarians Epstein and Friedman, this marks a successful foray into dramatized biography - a coherent fusion of recreated interviews, ‘transcripted’ courtroom drama and eloquent animated sequences, which bring cinematic flourish to Franco’s accurately mannered reading of the poem in its entirety.

“As exuberant and free-wheeling as the poem itself.” ~JOHN ANDERSON, NEWSDAY
