It's San Francisco in 1957, and an American masterpiece is put on trial. Howl, the film, recounts this dark moment using three interwoven threads: the tumultuous life events that led a young Allen Ginsberg to find his true voice as an artist, society's reaction (the obscenity trial), and mind-expanding animation that echoes the startling originality of the poem itself. All three coalesce in a genre-bending hybrid that brilliantly captures a pivotal moment-the birth of a counterculture.

However, they find themselves in a hilarious rut of bad luck, over and over in a very funny dark comedy.The family itself is pretty weird, but their string of bad luck multiples fivefold over and over, and they have to deal with it. Alfred Hitchcock would love this movie, as the murders and cover-ups are done with bizarre style and a very dark sense of humour.The only downside is that the movie ends a bit weak, with no real loose ends being tied up. They literally have dinner and cut to the credits. I thought this kind of hurt the film overall, as a funny ending would have complimented the whole movie.

(jp) wrote: Well, for a war movie, it's pretty slow, nothing very interesting really happens during the first hour. But, Stanley Baker, Nigel Green and Michael Caine lead this movie into being an interesting movie on a certain negelected moment of war. Although, the war action and fighting is done in a very corny old way, but for the time, it's very impressive, and it must've taken a lot of work to do. Recommended !!
