Beatdom #14


Beatdom #14 is the movie issue.




Beatdom #14 is the movie issue, and it’s our biggest one ever. We have interviews with the film-makers behind some of the best Beat movies, as well as reviews, essays, short stories, artwork, and poetry inspired by movies.

In this issue, David S. Wills takes a look at the first Beat flick, Pull My Daisy, while Nick Meador reviews the latest, Big Sur. Neil Reddy asks why Hollywood hasn’t yet gotten Beat-inspired movies right, while Michelle Rudolf contends that they did with Howl (2010). Naturally, we took a look at the recent adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, with GK Stritch lamenting that Marlon Brando never took the opportunity to play Dean Moriarty. We also have a meta-review of the reviews of Beat movies and a lot of investigation into William S. Burroughs’ interest in the movies, as well as their interest in him.

Film-makers Wayne Ewing, Marc Olmsted, Aaron Brookner, Waylon Bacon, and Tom Huckabee all join us to share their perspective from behind the camera, rounding out our best ever issue.
