Jack Kerouac’s Big Sur, now on film
Curt Worden has directed the documentary film One Fast Move or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur.
Director Curt Worden follows unsurprising documentary form by offering too many visuals of crashing waves in Big Sur and seamy bars in San Francisco, while a few witnesses offer their recollections of that period of Kerouac’s life. Witnesses include Ferlinghetti and Carolyn Cassady, the woman who openly shared the beds of both Kerouac and her husband and Jack’s best friend Neal Cassady.
