Not an adaptation of beat writer William S. Burrough's novel but a mix of biography and an interpretation of his drug- induced writing processes combined with elements of his work in this paranoid fantasy about Bill Lee, a writer who accidentally shoots his wife, whose typewriter transforms into a cockroach and who becomes involved in a mysterious plot in an Islamic port called Interzone. Wonderfully bizarre, not unlike Burrough's books.


A wonderfully bizarre piece of art. "Naked Lunch" is loosely based on William S.Burroughs novel of the same name.The film is excellently acted and filled with some truly bizarre characters:writers,drug addicts,mysterious strangers and homoerotic bugs.During 1950's in New York City bug exterminator(Peter Weller)gets introduced to injecting bug powder into himself by his wife Judy Davis.He gets addicted and starts hallucinating.He sees giant bugs which start controlling his life,as he sinks lower and lower.The bugs are well-created,especially the typewriter bug.The film features some excellent special effects,so if you like to see something different check out "Naked Lunch".A must-see!
