Only seeing this post now, so did you get to see this movie?
I loved it, but just to clear up the whole little boys thing...
Burroughs was homosexual, and kinda bisexual, and obsessed with any and all forms of violent, perverted sex. I think that this had more to do with his Beat- personality of defying the social norm at all costs and that he wrote "The Naked Lunch" while he was on a constant drug high for fifteen years, woke up and discovered that he had written that monster of a book. The chapters in the book are not even in order as there was no specific order. This novel was shocking, but I still found it intriguing enough to finish. One of the more gruesome experiences of my life!
