Scribbling magic lines ...

... Allen Ginsberg’s 'Howl’: 'I scribbled magic lines from my real mind’. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Howl, the film, brilliantly brings alive the story of the poem, mixing a dramatisation of the trial with reflections from Ginsberg (superbly played by Franco) and hallucinatory animations by the graphic-artist Eric Drooker, who collaborated with Ginsberg on a collection of illustrated poems in 1995.
