Director David Cronenberg and author William S. Burroughs invite you to lunch.

Part-time exterminator and full-time drug addict Bill Lee (Peter Weller) plunges into the nightmarish netherworld of the Interzone, pursuing a mysterious project that leads him to confront sinister cabals and giant talking bugs...

The fruit of an unholy union between two masters of the hilarious and the macabre, 'Naked Lunch' mingles aspects of Burroughs' novel with incidents from his own life, resulting in a compendium of paranoid fantasies and a searching investigation into the mysteries of the writing process.

 A favourite. A very strange but rewarding favourite.

"The unfilmable book" has been made into a film by one of cinema's only celluloid smiths capable of doing so - David Cronenberg.
But - readers of the book beware - this isn't the book, this is a film about writing the book, but it's not, but it is.
Taking parts from the book, and parts from the life of Burroughs, the film compiles a story of what is basically the writing process to an addict (I do apologise for what is probably a very reductive attempt at a description).

Shocking, daring, and definitely very technical, the story gives a feeling of eventual detachment from reality, and welcomes you into a world where the animatronic rubberized creatures from Cronenberg's mind seem to have more soul than the human characters.

This is a very odd movie with very odd subject matter, but ultimately, an excellent one. Buy it if you like weird thinky movies.

 Naked Lunch.

A truly bizzare film which is confusing and shocking. Its well worth a watch but be prepared to be confused and somethimes disturbed.
