Angel-Headed Hipsters

I really want to see "Howl" (the wiki entry), the new film about Ginsberg's poem (the wiki entry). The film is making its debut at Sundance, and was selected for first night, which is very cool.* Here are some clips that have wormed their way onto the internet:

James Franco's performance seemed a bit over the top to me at first, but then I know that Ginsberg was more than a bit...odd...when giving a reading (to be fair, what poet isn't?). I hope it comes somewhere close enough for me to see when it's done with the festival circuit.
