"This film for me was beautiful and insightful. I am a 17 year old film studies student and when i saw this film i found it utterly breathtaking. Maybe I have more of and appreciation for the film beacause i havent read Kerouac's novel , however this film has inspired me to do so. I feel when looking at this fil, forget about the novel and appreciate the film on its own. I really enjoyed i looking forward to reading Kerouac's novel and maybe seeing his take on events. I love jazz."
