Storyline

The lines between reality and perception blur in this comic journey into the life and mind (literally!) of one of sci-fi's most brilliant authors. Paranoid conspiracies of the highest order, drug-fueled interdimensional shifts, and 1970's pop culture combine for the mind-bending adventure of the century. Written by Anonymous

The absurd life of a Hollywood writer...
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ignore the other reviewers on this page. They are bias Philip K. Dick nerds who are too stuck on Dick's writing to review the movie at hand. The fact is, this is NOT a movie about Philip K. Dick. Yes, the main character is inspired by Dick. But the film is not trying to emulate the science fiction writer. There is a moment in the film that is a direct homage to one of Jean-Luc Godard's obscurer works. This film is a warped comedy. It is satirizing the life of writers like Dick.

The goal of Cronenberg's NAKED LUNCH was to portray William S. Burrough's life by evoking his works, the goal of Wilder's film is to portray the absurdity of the life of a Hollywood writer. In that sense, the film has more in common with Billy Wilder's SUNSET BOULEVARD, or Lynch's MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

This film deserves to be seen. It deserves a DVD/VOD release. But nowadays, that rarely happens for films like this unless the makers self-distribute. I hope this film gets out there soon, and people are able to see it.
