The Burroughs Century

Peter Weller stars as exterminator Bill Lee, who finds himself following his wife into an addiction to the bug powder he uses for his trade. After accidentally killing her, he descends into a hallucinatory existence in which he imagines himself a secret agent answering to a series of bizarre creatures. He channels his energies into writing "reports" on his delusional mission, while trying to break his addiction. The story reflects events in the life of William Burroughs as he developed the infamous novel. (35mm)
