Trailer Watch: James Franco in Howl

James Franco tries to channel Ginsberg. Not sure if it will work.

This movie should have not even left the shelves of the libraries. But the cast is one reason why we could get to watch this mediocre film. Ever since Allen Ginsberg as a character was featured in I’m not There. I have been avidly reading many of his diary entries and loads of his work. So a movie was sort of premature on the makers part.

The film has a good cast starting with James Franco to play Allen Ginsberg. The year is 1957 and he is about to put pen to paper on his masterpiece called Howl. But before anything was possible he had to face the wrath of the public for being too obscene.

Franco is joined by Mary Louise Parker one of my favorite all time, Jon Hamm, Jeff Daniels and David Strathairn it looks like a mix of indie and arthouse not a great one. So there is just a film made for more Oscar fodder.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
