    Review: 'Big Sur' A Beautifully, Anti-Romantic Look At The Beat Generation

    Whether audiences have wanted it or not, the Beat Generation has come storming back to the movies in the past year. Though focusing on different portions of their lives, both "On the Road" and "Kill Your Darlings" reveled in the freedom of jazz, the heady highs of drugs and the pursuit of pure exper...

    Watch: Trailer & New Pics For Latest Beat Generation Movie 'Big Sur'

    Has the landrush to make movies based on the Beat Generation actually amount to anything? Last year, Walter Salles' star-laden "On The Road" barely made a dent, while the forthcoming "Kill Your Darlings" boasting an equally compelling ensemble — Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen, Ben Foster, David C...

    Bizarre New Poster & Trailer For Long-Delayed Polish Brothers Film ‘Stay Cool’

    As filmmaking sibling duos go, Mark and Michael Polish have never been heralded as titans of the independent moviemaking scene, nor have they managed to attain consistent mainstream success like the brothers Coen or Duplass. Early efforts like “Twin Falls Idaho” -- in which the pair starred as conjoined twins to some acclaim -- and “Northfolk” certainly have their fans, but they came unstuck with an offensively mawkish Billy Bob Thornton vehicle no-one saw (“The Astronaut Farmer”) in 2006 and it’s hardly been plain sailing since then, with pictures like “The Smell of Success” dropping off the face of the Earth into instant obscurity or ‘secre...

    The Polish Brothers Turned Down The Opportunity To Direct 'Akira'

    One of the most interesting things about Warner Bros.' gestating "Akira" is that ever since director Albert Hughes bailed on the film at the end of May, there hasn't been a word about it. No shortlist of directors, no new names being tossed around for the lead. Nothing. Which is what makes this next...

    Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas & Jean-Marc Barr Head To 'Big Sur' For Michael Polish

    Anthony Edwards, Radha Mitchell, Balthazar Getty & Henry Thomas Round Out The CastCould the Beat Generation be experiencing a resurgence of mainstream interest? We'll have to wait and see but it certainly won't be for a lack of trying from Hollywood. Last year, James Franco starred in the underwhelming "Howl" centering on Allen Ginsberg and the famous trial around the poem. While that film fizzled, a much more star studded affair is around the corner with Walter Salles' adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic "On The Road" starring Kristen Stewart, Garret Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi, Elisabeth Moss...
