William S Burroughs: Commissioner of SewersDVD
Addict, author, lunatic, visionary, father of the beat generation. Author William S. Burroughs was all of these things and more. This documentary film helps shed light on how he developed his unique style, in classics like "Naked Lunch," often described as hallucinatory and prismatic. Through interviews with the author, public readings, and clips from his experimental films, filmmaker Klaus Maeck lets Burroughs tell his own story, including his thoughts on language as a weapon, travel through time and space, dreams, and death.
