Big Sur

Being released on January 14, 2014 from ARC Entertainment on DVD and directed by Michael Polish is Big Sur this is based on the book by Jack Kerouac this also stars Jean Marc-Barr (The Big Blue, Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), Josh Lucas (American Psycho), Stana Katic (ABC’s Castle), Anthony Edwards (NBC’s ER) and Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill). This movies run time is 100 minutes and about an attempt to heal from the deterioration caused by the pressures of sudden fame and too much alcohol, famous Beat author Jack Kerouac escapes to an isolated, mist-shrouded cabin in the primitive landscape of the Big Sur woods. Instead of finding the peace he desires, he is foiled once again by his own inner demons and sets off on a visceral collision course of paranoia, sex, delirium, misery and madness.

My Opinion: This is a long movie and hard to stay entertained for 100 minutes but has a great story line as we can all relate to not finding peace and drinking alcohol or just running away as a means of escape instead of confronting your problems.
