CineSchlock-O-Rama
Short Takes

CineSchlockers intrigued by Wild Bill's readings on Criterion's exquisite ode to Naked Lunch might consider picking up this odd compendium of spoken-word performances, experimental films and interview footage for another tantalizing glimpse at the Godfather of the Beats. Sequences of particular note are "Words of Advice to Young People," "The 10 Commandments Updated" and Gus van Sant's visualization of "A Thanksgiving Prayer." The latter remains chillingly sobering. Oh, and just to tap the schlock base, it don't get more cringe worthy than hearing Mr. Burroughs warble "Falling In Love Again" in German. (1986, 60 mins, Fullframe, DD mono, Promo reel. Technical note: Review disc would run on only one of three players attempted.)
