The Naked Feast soon in 4K Ultra HD, David Cronenberg adapts William Burroughs

In 1992, David Cronenberg tackled the adaptation of one of his bedside books, The Naked Feast by William Burroughs. After shooting his wife in the head, the author was consumed by guilt for the rest of his life and drowned his despair in opium. Hallucinations that we obviously find in Cronenberg's fantastic film which arrives in 4K. A nice surprise.

Peter Weller (Robocop) plays Bill Lee (substitute for Burroughs), a writer who, following the accidental murder of his wife, sees the world around him delirious. A complex, coded but deeply original film which will make its big comeback in 4K at Metropolitan Film & Video.

Peter Weller and Judy Davis

The naked feast, December 7th at Metropolitan

It is not yet known whether or not the previous bonus DVDs will be included in this 4K Ultra HD edition to come on December 7, namely: the audio comments of David Cronenberg in VOST, a 58-minute documentary on the director composed of interviews with actors, the film seen by Serge Grünberg (15'30), or even interviews with David Cronenberg and Howard Shore (the composer) captured during a public meeting at the Virgin Megastore… We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, the pre-order is open.
