The actual One Hour Film has been authorized for licensing to colleges and universities only.
Director Jean Francois Vallee takes us on a ride, deep inside the mind on William S. Burroughs. Vallee knew Burroughs quite well for many years and this film is considered to be a true tribute to the inner workings of Burrough's thought process.
The film includes interviews with Burroughs Estate Executor James Grauerholz, Paul Bowles, Barney Rosset, John Sinclair, Ted Morgan, Dick Seaver, and of course, Laurie Anderson.

“A junkie does not want to get warm; he wants to get ‘cool-cooler-cold, but he wants the cold like he wants his junk. Not outside where it does him no good but inside so it can sit around his spine like a frozen hydraulic jack. ‘Naked Lunch’ is a blueprint, a ‘how-to’ book...” W.S.B.
.…As were all the rest of the writings of William S.Burroughs. According to him there were“no more junkies at 103rd and Broadway waiting for their connection. The connection has gone somewhere else.” After the accidental shooting death of his wife and subsequent lurid headlines, he, too, went ‘somewhere else’ to escape his torment, to find his next connection, only to realize he had taken his nightmares with him
