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.Howl featuring James Franco and Jon Hamm is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, streaming with subscription on Hoopla, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and 8 others. It's a drama and romance movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.7 (12,650 votes).
