3/13/18. Lucky for Howard Brookner (who died of AIDS at the age of 34) that he had a nephew who happens to be a film maker to salvage his memory and his work. A somewhat decent documentary for those interested in William Burroughs, whose life was the subject of Howard Brookner's film that was never completed because of his death. Those interested in the Beat Generation, of which Burroughs was one of the better known writers of that time, may be interested in watching this.
