Si no conoces la vida y obra de Burrouhgs probablemente te resulte más surrealista de lo que es. Un 'WTF?' en toda regla23 julio 2015 (Editado)

Nunca pensé que pudiera llevarse exitosamente Burroughs al cine, pero Cronenberg logra plasmar el mundo del escritor y a la vez dejar su sello personal. En mi opinión, una genialidad.23 julio 2015 (Editado)
"The designated straight man in David Cronenberg's comic adaptation of William Burroughs's Naked Lunch, Peter Weller is as unsmiling as an icon and as unflappable as a '40s private eye. The movie opens by casting the shadow of Weller's fedora on a tenement door; he mumbles his way through every subsequent scene as Burroughs's stand-in, the exterminator in the three-piece suit. "
"Burroughs cognoscenti should not search for too much of a fix. It's impossible to transmogrify the novelist's extraordinary word play, his dry-ice irony, the beauty and frustration of his drug-muse inscrutability. It's also hard to sum up the book's rounded-spectrum of cruelty, addiction, hypocrisy, lies and truth. Also gone, for obvious reasons, are the passages of cruel, homosexual rape fantasies. "
"William S. Burroughs is one of the most pathetic figures in modern literature, his sadness made more poignant because it has been drawn out for so long. His cadaverous presence gave a hollow echo to a key scene in "Drugstore Cowboy," in which he was a junkie ex-priest who has long decades of pain in his eyes. It didn't seem like acting. And in a recent documentary about his life, Burroughs came across as a man who walks around with something wounded inside, something that hurts so much that his spirit simply shut down. "
