time-based visual demonstration of WSB's textual technique
7 September 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I saw this about ten years ago, and I wish I could find it again. I enjoy Burroughs's writing quite a bit, and it makes sense that he would be drawn into an experimental film. For most people, his involvement would be the main reason to watch this. There's not really anything to give away about the plot. Regardless, I only recall certain moments. If you like his writing and the sound of his voice then you shouldn't be disappointed.
