Sands, Roy Scheider, Monique
Mercure Runtime: 114 min Production Co: 20th Century Fox Country: Canada
Synopsis: Not an adaptation of beat writer William S. Burrough's novel but a mix of biography and an interpretation of his drug- induced writing processes combined with elements of his work in this paranoid fantasy about Bill Lee, a writer who accidentally shoots his wife, whose typewriter transforms into a cockroach and who becomes involved in a mysterious plot in North African port called Interzone. Wonderfully bizarre, not unlike Burrough's books.
Based on the book: William Seward Burroughs "Naked Lunch"
Director: David Cronenberg Release Year: 1983 Genres: horror, ski-fi Cast: James Woods, Sonja Smits, Deborah Harry, Peter Dvorsky, Les Carlson, Jack Creley, Lynne Gorman Runtime: 89 min Production Co: Canadian Film Development Corporation (CFDC), Famous Players, Filmplan International Country: Canada
Synopsis: Hardcore pornography, sadomasochism, mind control, and living televisions all play crucial roles in Videodrome, one of director David Cronenberg's explorations of dangerous sexuality and technological obsession. The morally questionable hero of the tale is one Max Renn (James Woods), a television executive searching for an intense new program for his sex-oriented network. He ultimately discovers an underground program called "Videodrome," which appears to broadcast pornographic snuff films of actual murders. Horrified but perversely intrigued, Renn sets out to find the truth behind the program. During his search, he meets alluring femme fatale Nicki (Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry), technology cult leader Bianca O'Blivion, and other mysterious figures. Things become even more disturbing for Renn as his addiction grows, and the program begins to infect the outside world -- or perhaps merely destroy own his sanity. Cronenberg mingles his cerebral concerns about the nature of reality in the video age with enough visceral gore (courtesy of Rick Baker) to satisfy the film's intended horror audience.

Director: Conrad Rooks Release Year: 1966 Genres: drama Cast: Jean-Louis Barrault, Conrad Rooks, William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Ravi Shankar, Paula Pritchett, Ornette Coleman Runtime: 82 min Production Co: Winkler Film Country: USA, France
Synopsis: Recut for video release in 1994, this rich kid's vanity project remains one of the more embarrassing artyfacts from the '60s. Rooks (born in Chappaqua, a sacred burial site for Native Americans) was a teenage alcoholic who turned to stimulants, downers, narcotics and hallucinogens; he spent a month at a Swiss detox clinic in 1962, and uses memories of that attempted cure as the framework for a gibbering mix of drama, documentary and fantasy. Counter-culture icons lend misguided support (Barrault as the doctor, Burroughs as the addictive tendency personified) and Rooks gets to cavort with assorted dolly-bird friends in crass 'psychedelic' sequences. Most alarming, it looks as if it could have been a seminal influence on Oliver Stone.
