A portrait of the American Beat Generation writer William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) based on never-before-seen footage from his visit to Denmark in October 1983, and from his later years in Lawrence, Kansas. After having spent more than a quarter of a century outside of the United States, in Mexico, Tangier, Paris and London, Burroughs returned to New York in 1974. Shortly after, he began touring and reading his work to new generations of readers and thus establishing himself as a cult figure. The film focuses on Burroughs' unique talent as a performer, and on his later work, especially what is known as The Last Trilogy. In addition to the historic footage there are new interviews with friends and colleagues.

Steve A (ca) wrote: Great movie. I really can't imagine improving it and I'm a judgemental asshole. Seriously it's a gem. See it asap. Emily Hampshire is a major talent and Jonas Chernick is the kind of Tom Hanks type that should be in constant demand. A well-paced and endearingly infectious script will make you laugh throughout while relating to the characters and genuinely liking them as people. This is the kind of movie that the big Hollywood names yearn for but will never make because the LA machine would fill it with debilitating cliche's trying to make it into a "star vehicle" and crush it's soul.

I also like the author of the book and her series, a fact that motivated me to watch the movie in the first place, but when I watched it I was not disappointed. I give it 4 stars because I feel that the story could have been more developed, and more thought out. I also give it 4 stars because it had things that i never really thought about before like using formulas to figure out how to do a jump , and had a lot of funny moments that could happen in real life. So what this movie is full of cliche story lines? The cliche parts add to the story, and believe it or not, they make it better.

Dinuksher W (br) wrote: Always felt that screenwriters have a moral responsibility towards the characters they create. Often you find films where characters are brought in and disposed rather functionally- In Taste of Cherry every single character we meet is accounted for and that's great work. And of course no one makes landscapes talk like Kiarostami!
Rainer K (es) wrote: Dobermann could have been a decent film maybe - with some minor adjustments though. Until the end you never get the feeling that the film knows what it wants to be - over-the-top pulp or a straightforward crime story. Whenever it shows the gangsters it's violent, energetic and over-the-top and when the cops are displayed it loses most of its pace and seems like a crime thriller.There are moments of cinematic glory in it though. All the gunfights are well-executed and perfectly edited and the violence is just on the right level to suit the tone of the film. Most of the time it tries too hard to imitate Tarantino and ends up bland and pointless.I don't even like Vincent Cassel in it - and he's one of my favourite actors.Afterwards, I have mixed feelings about Dobermann. I was entertained by its action sequences but the characters and the plot were generic and not very interesting and the dialogue downright laughable. Some cool scenes don't make a movie and the uneven setup doesn't qualify for a higher rating. So, all in all not really recommendable, Guy Ritchie's early efforts are way better and have similar style and better stories to tell.

Richard D (us) wrote: So, here's where I draw the line with Myers here. What isn't simply recycled from the first film isn't particularly funny, and his forced "here's a joke now!" delivery crushes a lot of what was funny in the first film. With Myers playing 4 characters in the film, my tolerance for him is strained beyond the breaking point. Whoever thought it was a good idea to cast Michael Caine as Myer's father must have forgotten than Powers traveled 30 years into the future in the first film. Caine is only 30 years older than Myers in the first place,
