Meet the beats in The Source, a finger-snapping doc by Chuck Workman that charts the rise and renaissance of the writers and poets who, during the staid Eisenhower ’50s, ”came to the conclusion that society sucked,” according to writer Amiri Baraka. Way-cool clips include everything from Jack Kerouac’s guest shot on The Steve Allen Show to Granny dissing beatniks on The Beverly Hillbillies. Johnny Depp, Dennis Hopper, and John Turturro reading excerpts from counter-culture classics On The Road, Naked Lunch, and Howl add to the hipness cachet. B (but grades are for squares)
