Dir. David Cronenberg. 1991, 115 mins.
With Peter Weller, Judy Davis, Ian Holm, Julian Sands, Roy Scheider. William Burroughs’s hallucinatory and “unfilmable” novel about a narcotics addict unmoored in New York, Tangiers, and a nightmarish world known as the Interzone becomes, in Cronenberg’s hands, a phantasmagorical portrait of the writing process, and of all artistic creation.
