A "Howl" unites history, plot and poetry seamlessly into one film, part pseudo-documentary, part mock interview with author Allen Ginsberg , part beatnik poetry recitation and part haunting animated feature.

This is a good idea since 'Howl' is indeed a masterpiece, and Allen
Ginsberg well known as one of the greatest of the 20th Century poets.
Maybe sending this over to the Beat Generation group, and perhaps even
the Dylan newsgroup where some of the scholars there might help
explain why Dylan himself holds the poetry of Ginsberg in such high
esteem will get a better response, which I've held off doing until
