I have seen Naked Lunch, and I love reading books by Burroughs, Kerouac and so on.

Is there any other movie made from their books, or about them, that I should see?

What a great era. Naked Lunch was made into a film which was quite different from the book.

Ginsberg's Howl, is the epitome of the era. Obviously On The Road, and I do recommend the book of Naked Lunch, the movie can never do such a... unconventional work of literature justice. I don't know if Salinger's Catcher in the Rye counts as part of this generation, but for some reason I thought of it.

Catcher in the Rye was written around the same time. 1951 I believe but I'm not sure if its considered from the beat generation.

The Source (http://imdb.com/title/tt0181833/) is a MUST.
