The first feature film by acclaimed photographer, Robert Frank is a portrait of the relationship between poet, Peter Orlovsky and his brother Julius, a catatonic schizophrenic. Orlovsky and mentor/lover Alan Ginsburg take Julius around the late 60’s counter-cultural scene until one day, a disappearance happens that alters the course of the film. This fascinating film-within-a-film (featuring a young Christopher Walken in the role of the director) blends fiction and reality to create a disorienting trip in which the idea of documentary truth is called into question.
