Naked Lunch (1991)

William Burroughs’ classic 1959 hallucinatory paranoia novel was helmed to the big screen by David Cronenberg. The resulting film suggests DC uncovered Burroughs’ stash of narcotics during production. Giant bugs are in much evidence, an accusation that is unlikely to be levelled at a coherent plot.
