Weird Entertaining Art-house

David Cronenberg has a strange affinity for books that are said to be “unfilmable.” Between this and his recent Cosmopolis, it seems unlikely that he has directed two book adaptations of this kind by accident.

Naked Lunch is a very interesting book, and I would definitely recommend to anyone seeing this movie to read the book first. Weather you read the book or the movie first is typically not a big deal. In fact I often get ticked by people who complain about how a movie is bad just because it’s not exactly like the book. Yet Naked Lunch is an exception I must make; trust me on this one.

The reason that you should read the book before seeing the movie? Simply put Naked Lunch isn’t really an adaptation of the book. It’s more a look a strange art-house look at the mind of a man...

Naked Lunch review

Not one of the best from the director in this critics opinion, it was however fresh with regard to its premise and horrific in certain scenes. William Lee (Peter Weller) is an exterminator who was tasked to perform a mission by a controller (a giant bug). The bugs were realistic and gore were spot on, coming from the directors reputation of creating realistic fiction. Weak-points were the uninteresting lead, lack of exciting supporting cast, ineffective soundtrack and clarity with the purpose of the missions. Even the pace was albeit sluggish. Had some funny and dramatic moments, but overall felt average compared to Cronenberg's many masterpieces. Naked Lunch is about writers/writing, finding an adventure and removing rational thoughts.
