Naked Lunch

Sound & Vision Magazine
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Interzone here is a drug-induced construct to which the movie’s Burroughs-like protagonist Bill Lee (a superbly droll Peter Weller) flees, imagining himself as an agent dispatching reports while using homosexuality as his cover. This wildly metaphorical Interzone is where Bill Lee’s psyche confronts his sexual confusion and its role in his addiction and Joan’s death, and the anguish of writing about all of it.

Naked Lunch

DVD Talk
12 April 2013
  • Conclusion: David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch is not a film for everyone but for those who enjoy his unique brand of filmmaking it's very much an important movie. Criterion has carried over all of the extras from their excellent two-disc DVD special edition from a few years ago and provided an excellent high definition transfer and new lossless audio, making this a very nice upgrade indeed. Highly recommended. Ian lives in NYC with his wife where he writes for DVD Talk, runs Rock!

Naked Lunch

High-Def Digest
10 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Cronenberg's work is the kind that often requires viewers to go back and analyze again and again, and this Criterion edition is the perfect way to do that. 'Naked Lunch' may stand as one of the director's most impenetrable works, but it benefits greatly from its unique approach to a similarly dense literary effort that has endured for many decades.

  • Conclusion: Provocative, but never as clever as it thinks it is, Cronenberg's film is ultimately a misfire.
