Naked Lunch is a 1991 drama film co-written and directed by David Cronenberg and starring Peter Weller, Judy Davis, Ian Holm, and Roy Scheider. It is an adaptation of William S. Burroughs' 1959 novel of the same name, and an international co-production of Canada, Britain and Japan.
The book is structured as a series of loosely connected vignettes . Peter Orlovsky, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac decided to visit Burroughs in Tangiers and see if they could salvage any of the fragmented writing that had been dripping from the mind of Burroughs while he was nurs The title means exactly what the words say: NAKED lunch-a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of the fork. If not for the intervention of William S. Burroughs friends, Naked Lunch would have never seen the light of day.
Naked Lunch: The Film. There is a common misconception that this is based on the William S. Burroughs novel of the same name. Actually it's a semi-fantasy based on Burroughs' life during the period that he was writing this novel, but not on the novel itself. Now that that's been cleared up: I liked this film very much. David Cronenberg directed it, and he was the one who did that incredible remake of 'The Fly' with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. I didn't think 'Naked Lunch' delivered as much as 'The Fly,' but I admire Cronenberg more than ever for making this challenging and uncommercial film, and I found certain images in it brilliant. Characters representing Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg tell Lee/Burroughs that his wife Joan has been shooting up his bug powder.

Naked Lunch represents that most unfilmable of all unfilmable projects. Salinger may have been right that The Catcher in the Rye could not be captured on celluloid. This line from the film (and this idea that appears in the novel) reminds us that Burroughs understood the idea of gender trouble long before scholars like Judith Butler defined the term. The film deals with this idea rather brilliantly. In one of the featurettes, Cronenberg tells of how he explained to Burroughs that the director’s own heterosexual sensibility would have to inform the film. This, of course, represents a departure from the book’s themes (since its, among other things, a classic of gay literatur. hough Burroughs probably would have disliked that description)

NAKED LUNCH is another masterful score by Shore but unlike anything he’d ever done before. In fact, it’s unlike any other film score I’ve ever heard. Which makes sense, considering LUNCH is unlike any movie ever made. Many had cited that beat legend William S. Burroughs’ hallucinatory novel was unfilmable, something that just made DC want to make it more. It’s mesmerizing and works perfectly as an album on its own, divorced from the film. MONDO’s double album release comes packaged in their typical sturdy gate-fold with arresting artwork by Rich Kelly and the records themselves rendered in ooze-colored yellow vinyl. Inside there’s both new notes from Shore and a vintage letter written by Coleman about the genesis of his sound for the movie, perhaps ported over from a previous soundtrack release, we’re unsure. Both albums are essential releases for DC completists.

He is generally allied with the Beats, and while he was close friends with the true Beats like Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, his writing never fit with the Beatnik style. His first couple of novels, Junkie (or Junky) and Queer, were written in a style reminiscent of hard-boiled detective novels.
