the film: Naked Lunch
the guest: Manny Montejano
I was but a teen when he first heard of (and saw) Naked Lunch. It seems appropriate, in this episode of WDWJW, that I sound utterly embarrassed as Manny and I attempt to explore the subject of the movie (which sounds like a teen boy who’s never seen an adult film, trying to impress his pals by saying he has, and his attempt to describe what he thinks that adult film would have been like. In short, the kid is a liar and this movie matches that fib). The film is based on the works of William S. Burroughs, which, if you know anything at all about the man, would explain why this film is utterly bonkers, if not entirely icky.
