This documentary special is a probing yet loving look at the man whose iconic works such as Naked Lunch savaged conservative ideals, spawned countercultural movements, and reconfigured 20th century culture.

Narrated by actor Peter Weller, and featuring interviews with colleagues and confidantes including John Waters, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Gus Van Sant, Laurie Anderson, and David Cronenberg, this is the definitive exploration of the Beat Generation author who challenged the world of literature and inspired an entire generation.
