The trailer itself is a movie. I am very eagerly anticipating the release of the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Big Sur, especially after the disappointment of On the Road.

Written and directed by Michael Polish, the film stars his fiancée Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas and Balthazar Getty. Set to premiere in a matter of days at Sundance, I wonder if it’ll be any good?

Tyler Bastian met an incredible man, Agustin, five years ago. This encounter led to the decision to make a film about Agustin’s life with Trevor Hill and Tim Skousen.

It appears I am not alone, his touching fifty year journey to realise an impossible dream of building a helicopter has captured the hearts of thousands of people around the world. Here, I share with you a chat I had with director, Tyler Bastian.

I hold great hopes for this film:

* one of the greatest twentieth century American novels.

* directed by Motorcycle’s Diaries’ Walter Salles.

* starring Garrett Hedlund, rising star of Tron: Legacy and a favourite since Four Brothers

* VIGGO MORTENSEN

(I am choosing to ignore the wooden one, aka Kristen Stewart)

 

I’ve been busy and neglectful, but I’m here to make amends, sharing how Dave Pimm is making it in the film world after uni. (Ah, I can always rely on Skype to give good chat)

Dave Pimm: Heyy, how’s it going?

The Wonder : hello! right on time!
