William S. Burroughs: A Man Within

2010 Rated NR 1hr 27m

Filmmaker Yony Leyser offers this fascinating portrait of Beat-era writer William S. Burroughs, a man whose sexuality, enthusiasm for guns and public struggle with opiate addiction made him a singular figure in American counterculture. Rare archival footage of Burroughs's odd antics and candid reflections from friends -- including John Waters, Iggy Pop, Amiri Baraka and members of Sonic Youth -- reveal the twisted genius of a literary icon.
