Have a look at “The Subliminal Kid,” a short, brilliant sequence from Andre Perkowski’s “Nova Express.” Excerpts of his montage film, a three-hour work-in-progress based on the writings of William S. Burroughs, will be screened tonight at the School for the Visual Arts in New York as part of an ongoing homage to Burroughs, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Naked Lunch.
Here is a longer, equally brilliant sequence, “Crab Nebula,” from the film. Burroughs himself reads the text. Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman are featured in readings of other texts.
The music throughout the film is by Kristin Palker and Perkowski.
