I can't recommend it, but we have some because it's historically significant and I know a few of you will be interested. Cult German narrative film from 1984 based on writings by William Burroughs (a kind of non-fun paranoid '80s version of the blaxploitative Space is the Place). Bill himself appears, along with FM Einheit, Christiane F, Genesis P Orridge and Bill Rice. The plot concerns sound experiments, tape- terrorism, multinational companies and street fighting. With English subtitles. Plus: trailer, 46 minute interview with director Klaus Maek, footage of Derk Jarman filming Burroughs, Berlin riot footage (why not?). Music by Soft Cell, The The, Einstuurtzende Neubauten, Dave Ball and Genesis P.
