"William S. Burroughs: featuring never before seen footage as well as exclusive interviews with his closest friends and colleagues. Born the heir of the Burroughs' adding machine estate, he struggled throughout his life with addiction, control systems, and self. He was forced to deal with the tragedy of killing his wife and the repercussions of neglecting his son. His novel, Naked Lunch, was one of the last books to be banned by the U.S. government. Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer testified on b"

"31.8.2012 Kohtuullisen onnistunut pintatason katsaus William S. Burroughsin elämään. Yksi dokkarin vahvuuksista on puhuvat päät, jotka tosiaan tunsivat Burroughsin tämän eläessä. Katsojalle välittyy ihan mielenkiintoisia tarinoita ja tunnelmia. "

"June 28 Burroughs himself denied the title of godfather of punk but that didn’t stop musicians from flocking around him, short of worshipping him a god.

That said, it’s a little short on the early days of Burroughs, Ginsberg and Kerouac and focused on the later years—that of the shotgun-wielding, living i"

"29.10.2010 - Reserva Cultural, São Paulo - SP O título fala por si. Um documentário sobre um dos autores mais conhecidos da geração Beat – William Burroughs. Excelente trabalho do diretor Yony Leyser. Ele soube explorar a relação do escritor com pessoas próximas e a forma como serviu de influência para outras obras, sem ser cansativo. Entre um depoimento e outro, inseriu alguns trechos de entrevistas feitas com Burroughs – muito bem escolhidas, por sinal. "
