Howl

Last week I went to see a preview of ‘Howl’ the newly released film about Allen Ginsberg’s famous poem and the obscenity trial that took place in 1957 as a result of it being published by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

I don’t get to the flicks often these days, and when I do it’s normally the local Odeon, so it was a rare treat to snuggle up with a beer in one of the warm, womblike screens of the Curzon cinema in Soho.

The film is worth seeing for all kinds of reasons but is not by any means perfect.

You can read my review of it for The Hospital Club website here.
