Where on earth do you start with this? I think that you either ' get ' William S. Burroughs or you don't and luckily for me he couldn't do anything wrong.Whether writing, painting, acting,' singing ' or just talking this man was a true genius. Cronenberg's Naked Lunch is a mixture of Bill's cut-up novel, autobiography and the writing of the novel and to my mind is absolutely sublime. The Criterion bluray isn't perfect but it's much better than any other release currently on sale and I highly recommend it. I was going to list all the details, extras etc. But www.Bluray.com does it far better than I, so leave me, go there, read and order this immediately!
