Burroughs by William S Burroughs( Visual )

Made up of intimate, revelatory footage of the singular author and poet filmed over the course of five years, Howard Brookner's 1983 documentary about William S.

This documentary-fiction film begins as an investigation into the life and work of controversial psychologist and philosopher Wilhelm Reich and then explodes into a free-form narrative of a beautiful young Slavic girl's sexual liberation.

Superstar in a housedress : the life and legend of Jackie Curtis( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the heyday of Andy Warhol's legendary hub of art, subculture, and insanity known as the Factory, one performer made his mark like no other: Jackie Curtis. A wildly creative, avant-garde performer, poet, playwright, and longtime friend and collaborator of Warhol's, Curtis was well known as a cross-dressing phenom whose personal life went even further and was even wilder than anything onstage and onscreen. In this loving, dazzling, and, above all else, shocking memorial to Curtis--who died tragically of a drug overdose in 1985--filmmaker Craig Highberger delivers a fascinating oral biography of the drag queen, including interviews with such counterculture luminaries as Holly Woodlawn, Joe Dallesandro, Paul Morrissey, and Michael Musto. DVD includes producer/director Highberger's award-winning documentary film Superstar in a Housedress, narrated by Lily Tomlin.--Publisher description
