Destroy All Rational Thought2006

  • 2.7
The great Beat Generation experiments took place in Tangier, the Moroccan city where William Burroughs, Brion Gysin and the Moroccan painter Hamri taught Jack Kerouac, Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg how to live outside the law. This documentary features one of the last interviews with Burroughs and previously unseen vintage footage of him in his prime during the 50s and early 60s. Also featured are The Master Musicians of Joujouka collaborating with avant garde Dublin musicians, veterans of the Tangier Beat Scene and cutting edge writers. In addition, there is music from Bill Laswell, The Baby Snakes, plus contributions from Ira Cohen, Hakim Bey, Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy) and many more.
