Commissioner of Sewers1991

  • 4.1
COMMISSIONER OF SEWERS combines interview and archival material, paintings and clips of William S. Burroughs' film appearances (including DECODER and Gus Van Sant's DRUGSTORE COWBOYS and THANKSGIVING PRAYER) with footage from Burroughs' last European reading in Berlin on May 9th, 1986 to create a witty and intriguing portrait of the man described by Norman Mailer as "the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius."

First rate interview that reveals the philosopher/teacher WSB who operates beneath his nightmare obsessed fictional alter egos. And, as always, very, very funny.

I'm a total Burroughs fanboy, so of course I'm going to tell you it's great, and you need to watch it. So yeah !
