Jason's rating of the film Burroughs: The Movie

I'm one of those guys. Thirteen years old. Read a magazine article about Mr. Burroughs, and it was all over for me. Burroughs was my entry pod into literature and the counterculture. He is a man well-suited to candid documentary treatment. His whole affect is a huge piece of his art. The voice. The manner. The wardrobe. The biography. A very special modality of mutual exploitation here between filmmaker and subject.
