Henry Miller's once-banned 1934 novel based on his sexual escapades amongst the denizens of Paris is updated to the 1960s in this adaptation by director Joseph Strick ("Ulysses"). Rip Torn plays the writer whose chronicles in eroticism and sexual obsession blazed new trails in literature─and caused much turmoil in his personal life. With James Callahan, Ellen Burstyn, and, in a cameo, Henry Miller. Uncut version; 87 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
