Weekend Picks

Friday the 13th Ed.

Local poets celebrated today with a poetic massacre as they wielded scissors and cut into their will to be weird at a cut up poetry workshop for teens. You too can discover the eccentric and most peculiar with some movie picks on the master of the cut-up technique, William S. Burroughs.

William S. Burroughs: a man within

William Burroughs: the Beats éminence grise, “literary outlaw,” culture hero to generations of poets, musicians, artists, and filmmakers who had their minds blown by his 1959 classic, banned-in-America “Naked Lunch.” This film covers his life in a straightforward manner, but the portrait drawn is at odds with the character who wrote in outlandish graphic detail about then-forbidden sexuality in the 1950s and ’60s.


Naked Lunch

A part-time exterminator writes of his drug induced fantasy world where he confronts giant talking bugs.


Kill your Darlings

A story of friendship, love, and murder in the early 1940s. The story recounts the pivotal year that changed Allen Ginsberg’s life forever and provided the spark for him to start his creative revolution. Based on true events and characters.
