Naked Lunch Blu-ray Review | High Def Digest
Everybody remembers his first time. Nobody talks about William S. Burroughs's " Naked Lunch ," which celebrated its 50th birthday this past November dated from its publication in Paris by Maurice Girodias' infamous Olympia Press , without indulging in a dreamily solipsistic nostalgia trip. The book completely knocked me out, the epitome of stoned humor and bohemian subversion. I'll join in the fun.
Blank-faced bug killer Bill Lee and his dead-eyed wife, Joan, like to get high on Bill's pest poisons while lounging with Beat poet pals. After meeting the devilish Dr. Benway, Bill gets a drug made from a centipede. Upon indulging, he accidentally kills Joan, takes orders from his typewriter-turned-cockroach, ends up in a constantly mutating Mediterranean city and learns that his hip friends have published his work -- which he doesn't remember writing.
William S. Burroughs is one of the most pathetic figures in modern literature, his sadness made more poignant because it has been drawn out for so long. And in a recent documentary about his life, Burroughs came across as a man who walks around with something wounded inside, something that hurts so much that his spirit simply shut down. He has kicked drugs, he claims, and is gainfully employed as an insect exterminator. But his wife Judy Davis is addicted to the bug powder, and so is Bill, to such an extent that millions of cockroaches owe him their lives.
