Long Live The New Flesh

To say David Cronenberg is a deep thinker is an understatement. He is responsible for some of the most disturbing images of the human psyche manifested into the mutated human form in film history. His work has been described as "venereal".There is an excellent article in the Times that gets to the core of this filmmaker, one whom I've admired for many years. Truly in a class all his own, he is getting ready to release maybe his most accessible film to date, A History of Violence. I'm still pissed I got shut out of actually hearing him speak at the Museum of the Moving Image screening of the film. Oh well, another time, another place, Mr. Cronenberg.
