This is the trailer for William S. Burroughs: A Man Within (THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID LOL), a documentary about you guessed it, Einstein P. Smartbrain, William S. Burroughs. It features appearances by David Cronenberg, Peter Weller (who’ll surely have important things to say about Burroughs’ contribution to the literary canon because he played Robocop), Iggy Pop, Gus Van Sant, Jello Biafra, and everyone’s favorite, Genesis P-Orridge. (I don’t even know, dude, just keep walking and try to avoid eye contact). Anyway, it’s a good thing William Burroughs shot his wife and was into guns and gay sex and gay sex with guns, because otherwise all they’d have to talk about is that f-ing unreadable heroin ramble of a book he wrote.
