The Burroughs Century

Michael Almereyda’s first feature film presents an eccentric Kansas tycoon and the ruins of his eccentric and highly dysfunctional family. Maureen Cleveland, now single, lives with her precocious daughter and her very strange brother, Howdy (Crispin Glover). They wind up trapped in the family mansion as a particularly bad Kansas twister is heading their way. To complicate matters, their estranged father, Eugene (Harry Dean Stanton), joins them with his prudish new girlfriend, a children's TV evangelist, and announces their engagement. Twister is a medley of bizarre conversations and oddball characters, including William S. Burroughs, who plays a neighbor who enjoys shooting targets in his empty barn. (35mm)
