Movie of the Week - Destroy All Rational Thought with William Burroughs

Burroughs shot by Kate Simon

This week's Movie of the Week is a good one. This film features one of the last interviews with Burroughs, and previously unseen vintage footage of him in his prime during the 50s and early 60s. Also featured are The Master Musicians of Joujouka, and experiments that took place in Tangier where William Burroughs, Brion Gysin, and the Moroccan painter Hamri taught Jack Kerouac, Timothy Leary, and Allen Ginsberg, how to live outside the law. In addition, there is music from Bill Laswell, The Baby Snakes, plus contributions from Ira Cohen, Hakim Bey, Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy) and many more.
