Big Sur

Written & Directed by Michael Polish

A recounting of Jack Kerouac's three sojourns to the cabin in Big Sur owned by his friend, poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

"'Big Sur' rises and fades, shifts and moves, through movements and melodies, singing a beautifully sad song for an era and a man who lost his way." - Kevin Jagernauth, IndieWire

"Filming a truly immersive and dimensional adaptation of a Kerouac novel remains an ongoing challenge for any filmmaker, but Polish’s film comes closer than most, while adding another layer of complexity to the author’s venerable reputation." - Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter

"Gorgeously photographed on the central California coast with lingering shots of the crashing surf and shafts of sunlight through redwoods, it offers a vision of paradise that its restless, frenzied characters can only dimly appreciate."; "Filmed without a trace of sentimentality, 'Big Sur' is an achingly sad last hurrah." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
