James Franco's passionate and intelligent reading of Allen Ginsberg's Howl is placed alongside a recreation of the obscenity trial of its publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The animated translation of the poem is overly literal, but kudos to the filmmakers for bringing Ginsberg's work to a new generation.
