Commissioner Of Sewers R2 (Region 1) - Burroughs, William S
Releasedatum: 2 december 2003
'Commissioner Of Sewers' combines interview and archival material, paintings and clips of William S. Burroughs' film appearances (including 'Decoder' and Gus Van Sant's 'Drugstore Cowboy' and 'Thanksgiving Prayer') with footage from Burrough's last European reading in Berlin on the 9th may 1986 to create a witty and intriguing portrait of the man described by Norman Mailer as '... the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius.'. In an extensive conversation with author Jurgen Ploog, Burroughs discusses his many preoccoupations, including the word as virus, death and dreams, travel in time and space, and the cut-up and fold-in methods which he used extensively in his early novels and which have become commonplace in advertising, film and music. 'Commissioner Of Sewers' is an essential and entertaining document for any viewer or reader who wants to know more about the 'father of the Beat Generation' and author of some of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, including 'Exterminator, The Place Of Dead Roads' and 'Naked Lunch'.
