Critic Reviews of "Naked Lunch"Scene-Stealers.comApril 23, 2013
A challenge if you're expecting a forward-moving plot but there's also more than enough pitch-black humor and straight-faced madness to lighten the mood, especially since Burroughs' strange lingo and vicious knack for language are intact.Examiner.comApril 12, 2013
If you've yet to purchase this incredible mind-trip involving bug powder, Brazilian centipedes, typewriters turning into giant insects, and bumping into Mugwumps in bars then the Blu-ray release is well worth your hard earned money.ColeSmithey.comJuly 18, 2009
...very nearly accomplishes the book's goal of "extinguishing all rational thought."Arkansas Democrat-GazetteSeptember 05, 2007
a respectful fugue on Burroughs' life and art ... It can be forgiven its acolyte's soul, for it is willing ...to confront Burroughs' signature themes of addiction and control, and to meld them into ... an evocation of the master.Urban CinefileMay 05, 2007
This is the only film in which a typewriter beetle kills another typewriter beetle for being a secret agent. I mention it only because of the relevance of the written word, and typewriters %u2013 portable ones in this case %u2013 are the medium of the mesZap2it.comSeptember 08, 2005
Given that nobody could really have adapted Burroughs' book in any literal manner, what Cronenberg does instead is predictably creepy, warped and dreamy.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 18, 2004
Stands on its own apart from the book.Reno Gazette-JournalJanuary 05, 2004
There are no great scenes, just flat moments of weirdness with lots of schlorping noises.Nick's Flick PicksAugust 15, 2003
One of Cronenberg's most difficult but deliriously clever and emotionally insinuating films.eFilmCritic.comJuly 10, 2003
Cronenberg's overly-ambitious attempt at filming the unfilmable.Film Freak CentralMarch 09, 2003
At root the most personal mission statement of a vital cinematic voice.Capital Times (Madison, WI)March 06, 2003
Cronenberg is the right man for a very, very odd job.
