The Discipline of Do Easy
Before Good Will Hunting, before Drugstore Cowboy, even before Mala Noche, Gus Van Sant made a series of short, humorous films. One was “The Discipline of DE,” based on a William S. Burroughs story in his collection “Exterminator!”
The Discipline of Do Easy is a philosophy of life propounded by Burroughs. Is it a parody of Eastern religion? Mockery of self-help books? An actual, surprisingly deep discipline based on Daoism? Funny?
“He who has learned to do nothing with his whole mind and body will have everything done for him.”
