($39.99 Blu-ray; Criterion Collection)
David Cronenberg’s 1991 adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ classic cut-and-paste novel also amalgamates incidents and people from Burroughs’ own life, including the shooting of his wife and friend Alan Ginsberg. Peter Weller stars as Burroughs alter-ego Bill Lee, an addict who slips into a strange alternate reality where typewriters talk, insect powder is the drug of choice, and a whole bunch of gay boys await. Strange, queer stuff, and this Criterion Blu-ray release makes it look absolutely stunning. The generous trove of extras includes a commentary track, making-of, special effects gallery, audio recording of Burroughs reading from the novel, and much more.
