Well, while I was walking to the train this morning, I was thinking about Ed Sanders's formulation of what G.'s life taught us - and as I passed underneath a big old bending and bowing tree, felt a little dubious about the better world part. I muttered something about it to myself, as I am wont to do ... and... at that exact instant, the tree let loose a SHOWER of acorns on my head. Not just a small handful, but what felt like every last nut on the tree. Between that & Patti Smith's shivered tooth, I may now have to consult with some Buddhist monks! It's really a wonderful film. Whatever you think about Ginsberg and his work, you'd probably enjoy it and get something out of it.
