NAKED LUNCH
1991, 20th Century Fox, 115 min, Canada/UK/Japan, Dir: David Cronenberg

Once more, director David Cronenberg films the un-filmable with this adaptation from one of his key literary influences, William Burroughs. Peter Weller is Bill Lee, a frustrated writer and bug exterminator who is introduced to the narcotic effects of bug poison by his wife (Judy Davis), in the 1950s. After accidentally shooting her and pursued by the drug squad, Lee finds himself traversing the strange Middle Eastern city Interzone, where all manner of half-human and polysexual creatures dwell. With Roy Scheider, Julian Sands, and Ian Holm. "…perhaps one of the most penetrating examinations of a writer's processes ever made. Certainly it's one of the strangest and most disturbing." – Hal Hinson, Washington Post.
