Burroughs: A Man Within Gets A Plug From Variety

William S. Burroughs: A Man Within



A Yonilizer Prods. and BulletProof Film presentation. (International sales: Submarine, New York.) Produced by Yony Leyser. Co-producers, Carmine Cervi, Ilko Davidov. Directed, written by Yony Leyser.

With: William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Regina Weinreich, Patti Smith, Amiri Baraka, John Waters, Peter Weller, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

For a guy who always looked cadaverous, William S. Burroughs has been overripe for the kind of substantive, stylistically simpatico docu treatment he gets from helmer Yony Leyser, whose "William S. Burroughs: A Man Within" does real justice to the Beat writer, gun nut and literary icon. Specialty/arthouse release would seem a real possibility, especially in urban centers, and more especially, New York. Full story >>
