Instead, he creates a [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory heavily fictionalized biopic]] about Creator/WilliamSBurroughs, in which Burrough's long time [[AuthorAvatar avatar]], William Lee (Creator/PeterWeller), is working as an exterminator and [[EverybodyMustGetStoned gets high off his bug powder]]. He later flees to Interzone after the now-legendary [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace shooting of his wife]], Joan Vollmer, where he becomes tangled in a world of surreal espionage, through contact with several giant bug-shaped, alien typewriters who talk out of their asses. You read that right. It's a ''really'' weird movie.

* WriterOnBoard: The entire movie is about writers talking about writing; and at one point a typewriter sprouts an erect penis-like appendage when pornography is written on it.
