Though much of Naked Lunch is flip, hip and hilariously funny, it never wanders far from a profoundly melancholic undertone - Cronenberg's unshakable sense of loneliness, isolation and anxiety. [10 Jan 1992]
Naked Lunch is so well-acted and so amusingly warped that it's a shoo-in to become a cult movie. [30 Dec 1991]
While I admired it in an abstract way, I felt repelled by the material on a visceral level.

Stretching himself with each new work, David Cronenberg has come up with a fascinating, demanding, mordantly funny picture.
