Reaction to OTR Trailer/Jerry Cimino from The Beat Museum

Garrett Minds‘ friend Jerry Cimino has written his reaction to OTR trailer. Here is a part of it, please make sure you visit the Huffington Post site to read the rest!

On The Road Movie Trailer Promises an Adaptation Worthy of Kerouac

Controversy has raged for decades among Beat Generation fans as to whether this movie should even have been attempted. I can understand both sides of the argument. On The Road is a very personal novel for many, many people. At the Beat Museum, located in San Francisco, we see people from every corner of the world walk through our doors daily who are on their own personal journey kick-started by their reading of Kerouac’s books. On The Road holds a very special place in the hearts of many of these people and they don’t want their vision of Kerouac’s book (and their own personal journeys) messed with.

The flipside of that argument, of course, is that On The Road must be made into a film. Jack Kerouac himself sent a letter to Marlon Brando back in 1959 imploring Brando to make the film. Kerouac understood that a novel is not a movie and he even told Brando he was willing to write the screenplay himself incorporating whatever accommodations and changes needed for the story of the book to work as a film.

In 2012 that argument still has not subsided. But with the release of the trailer for Walter Salles’ film adaptation of On The Road I believe the filmmakers have magnificently met their obligation to the true fan and to their own artistic callings.

Captured in this 1.45-minute trailer is all the energy, drive, excitement and uncertainty of the book itself. The raw sexuality of Garrett Hedlund as Neal Cassady and Kristen Stewart as his 16-year-old bride, Lu Anne Henderson. From the dance halls of New York to the hotel rooms of Denver to the whorehouses of Mexico, Kerouac’s words come alive on the screen.

Arrival of the ’49 Hudson – Video!

Garrett Hedlund (portraying Neal Cassady in the upcoming film adaptation of Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’, directed by Walter Salles) drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco on December 7th, 2011 to deliver the 1949 Hudson used in the movie to The Beat Museum. Accompanying Hedlund were John Allen Cassady (son of the real Neal) and Al Hinkle (‘Big Ed Dunkel’ in the book, and the last living man to have accompanied Jack & Neal).

The 1949 Hudson is now on ongoing public display at the Beat Museum.

What a great video! Thanks to Jerry and the Beat Museum for keeping our Garrett Minds ladies updated!
