Excerpt: Naked Lunch is an odd movie, as it should be. I first saw it as a teenager and didn't understand it fully but was still compelled by it, so much so that now as an adult I appreciate the movie even more. The symbolism here is so strong as are the performances, a fine piece of cinema! This criterion release delivers on all fronts: great transfer, decent audio and extensive extras. Interzone has never looked better!
Excerpt: the mind of William Burroughs. Naked Lunch is a film about the life of William Burroughs, while using elements from the book. The story is very cryptic for someone that has no background of Burroughs. The first time I watched it, closer to the time of its release, I had no idea what I had just watched.

The transfer looks very good and has been taken from a clean copy. Colors are strong and true to the warm and stylised palette devised by DP Peter Suschitzky. Artefacting - small dirts on the negative - is discernible here and there, although it's really a minor concern.
Excerpt: ...This is my review from another forum! Please, sorry for my bad english!... Premised that I shook, to the single thought to see the umpteenth bad one transfer of a masterpiece... Fortunately it has not even been so! Viewed here and there and to my modest seeming it is made indeed an optimal job, I do not have the more pale idea from which master HD they have carried out the transfer, also because until yesterday there was alone (besides that Italian always of Eagle) an...
