The Source (1999 film)

The Source is a 1999 documentary film [1] about the Beat Generation and its impact on the countercoulture movements from the 1960s-70s onwards.[2]

It was directed by Chuck Workman, and features appearances by Johnny Depp, Dennis Hopper, and John Turturro.[3]


The film received positive acclaim with an 88% on Rotten Tomatoes.[4]

Gary Morris of Bright Lights Journal, however, states that the "intriguing yet shallow" documentary is less a linear biography of the movement than a kind of "Beat chic" sampler.[5]
