William S. Burroughs: A Man Within

.

The film features never before seen footage of William S. Burroughs, as well as exclusive interviews with his closest friends and colleagues including John Waters, Genesis P-Orridge, Laurie Anderson, Peter Weller, David Cronenberg, Iggy Pop, Gus Van Sant and soundtrack by Sonic Youth. Burroughs was one of the first writers to cross the boundaries of queer and drug culture in the 1950s. He has influenced generations of artists.
This extremely personal documentary breaks the surface of the troubled and brilliant world of one of the greatest authors of all time.

Press

  • Everything you need to know about a pioneering writer who took individuality to its furthest extremes.
    Film Journal International
  • One fascinating tribute.
    San Francisco Chronicle
  • The documentary persuasively argues that Burrough's most dangerous addiction might have been the refusal of love.
    Slant Magazine
  • There is not a word or image wasted in a documentary you wish ran an extra half-hour beyond its condensed 90 minutes.
    The New York Times
  • Never-before-seen archival footage of Burroughs (with Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and others) completes this fine portrait of the artist… Reccomended.
