Weaving together elements of Burroughs’ own remarkable biography with the content of the book, Cronenberg's film steps inside the body and mind of an author to depict the dangerous act of imagination itself from the inside out. While it would be futile to deny that drugs are a central theme of Burroughs’s work, Cronenberg’s film looks fresher for avoiding the cliches of heroin chic. Burroughs often said that he started writing after a tragic accident that occurred in Mexico City, and he wrote to take his mind off of that episode but could never truly succeed in forgetting it.

There’s also Ian Holm and Judy Davis as the Frosts, two ex-pats loosely inspired by Paul and Joan Bowles, who Burroughs had met in Tangier.Naked Lunch forms a neat diptych with Cronenberg’s previous film Dead Ringers as an analysis of misogyny, and like the previous film it was accused of being misogynistic.

Peter Weller, Judy Davis, Ian Holm, Julian Sands, Roy Scheider, Monique Mercure, Nicholas Campbell, Michael Zelniker, Robert A. We reviewed the Region free UK Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Naked Lunch on a Panasonic TX-65HZ1000B Ultra HD 4K TV with a Panasonic DP-UB450 Dolby Vision HDR10+ 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Naked Lunch is provocative, transgressive, and surreal - a feast for the senses, where nothing is true and everything is permitted.The lasting impact of these moments is made possible by the fabulous work of Effects Artist Chris Walas, who won an Oscar for his previous work with Cronenberg on The Fly. The drugs depicted are all fictional, ranging from the almost-realistic to the completely outrageous, and this allows Cronenberg to refocus his attention on how Naked Lunch uses addiction as a metaphor. Description In a career dedicated to seeing the unseeable and filming the unfilmable, perhaps only David Cronenberg could really do justice to William S.

Featurette - a standard short featurette with comments by cast and crew members and footage from the shooting of Naked Lunch. Criminally undervalued by the studio upon its release it was a box-office bomb that has garnered a cult following for its unusual subject matter, structure, and coherence.

Interzone became what it always should have been, a huge city of the mind, constructed in Toronto warehouses and bearing only a slight, nagging resemblance to any real place. Naked Lunch is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Arrow Video with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.

Criterion's upcoming Blu-ray release allows one to experience the film at home in the best possible way. Most of the interviews are brand new, and I haven’t scratched the surface of them in this paragraph: cinematographer Peter Suschitzky and composer Howard Shore are also interviewed, alongside a special featurette on Shore’s Ornette Coleman-assisted score. The extras package goes over and above in it’s adoration of the film, with all new material supplementing the archival footage, with this special edition having even more bumph to enjoy. Naked Lunch is released by Arrow Video on 17 April 2023 on Limited Edition 4K UHD, Limited Edition Blu-ray and Limited Edition Original Artwork Slipcase UHD.The recording was produced in 1995 for an audiobook and features music by Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, and Eyvind Kang.
