Many of us already know about this, but I thought I'd start a thread to boost awareness- On November 11, David Cronenberg's NAKED LUNCH will street as a special edition 2-disc set, courtesy of the Criterion Collection. hopefully this will boost awareness of the film and Cronenberg, who is quite an interesting filmmaker. dvd features: *New high-definition digital transfer, approved by director David Cronenberg and enhanced for widescreen televisions * Audio commentary by Cronenberg and actor Peter Weller * Naked Making Lunch, a London Weekend Television documentary about the making of the film, directed by Chris Rodley * Illustrated essay about the special effects in Naked Lunch by the editor of Cinefex magazine, Jody Duncan, featuring artifacts from Cronenberg's archive * Film stills gallery * A collection of original marketing materials * William S. Burroughs' audio recording of excerpts from Naked Lunch * A collection of archival stills of William S. Burroughs from the Allen Ginsberg Trust * 32-page booklet featuring essays by film critic Janet Maslin, Chris Rodley, Gary Indiana, and a piece by William S. Burroughs. Now that I look at these extras, they seem kind of weak. I assume that documentary is damn long, because other than that the extras seem somewhat light. There's not much else besides Cronenberg's commentary and the usual badass booklet. That the dvd will be great is not my question, though. The question on the floor is, is this movie good? I've never seen it. Is it worth a blind buy? From what I hear, it isn't comparable to much else. I don't care what the movie's about, just that it's a piece of art worthy of watching several times. Can somebody talk about the writing, cinematography, etc? btw, has anyone actually seen this film? I don't know any people who've even heard of it.
