William S. Burroughs: Commissioner of Sewers

1986 NR

An in-depth portrayal of controversial writer and cult icon William S. Burroughs, this compelling documentary combines interview and archival material, paintings, clips of Burroughs's film appearances and even footage from some of his public readings. In his interviews, Burroughs addresses such varied topics as language, his theory of the world, the function of dreams, time and space travel, mummification and the socioeconomic system.
