A good movie

It had been a while since I had seen a movie directed by David Cronenberg and the concept of Cronenberg directing an adaptation of the most famous book written by William S. Burroughs was quite intriguing. Well, I’m not sure if I should recommend it but it was still something ‘else’. The point is that 90% of the movie is basically a feverish dream of a junkie but, somehow, you could still ma... read more

I had added this film to my 'want to watch' list. What I do is I go to netflix, and find which movies on my list are on netflix. This one happened to be avalible.

I had no idea what this film was about all I knew was it was trippy. I was instantly enthralled with the story as soon as I found out what the drug of choice was. I thought it was hilarious, and quite disgusting to say the... read more

AMAZINGLY AWESOME - YES YES YES! Now I definitely have to read the book. This was alike to Existenz and Videodrome (other Cronenbergians) but even spectacularly better! So stylish and well done. This one has class. ♥

A good movie

“It had been a while since I had seen a movie directed by David Cronenberg and the concept of Cronenberg directing an adaptation of the most famous book written by William S. Burroughs was quite intriguing. Well, I’m not sure if I should recommend it but it was still something ‘else’. The point is that 90% of the movie is basically a feverish dream of a junkie but, somehow, you could still make up what was actually going on and I also appreciated the fact that the main character (basically Burroughs himself) was pretty far out but still rather aware that he was pretty much hallucinating the whole thing. Well, he did shot his wife, apparently Burroughs really did it to his own wife so that wasn’t an hallucination. On top of that, Cronenberg had basically a blast creating those weird ” read more

"If the second half was a great as the first half, this would be a true masterpiece. Instead it's a noteworthy oddity from the marvelous David Cronenberg. "

November Movie Journal - Xanadon't (27 movies items)

" All the elements of a cult masterpiece- and yet, somehow the movie never fully did it for me. I think I need to watch it again and figure out why, after loving the first half, the second half seems to break down a bit. Really fucking bizarre, at any rate. "

"Day 1 : A memorable animal in a horror movie It's more surrealist than horror, but the Cronenberg typewriter-insects in Naked Lunch are marked in my memory."

David Cronenberg, ranked (20 movies items)

" As Cronenberg once said in an interview "in order to be faithful to the book, you have to betray the book, 'cause there's no direct translation that you can do of a novel. The two media are very different". And this is how he acheived the arduous task of handing an efficient and brilliant cinematic version of the complex opus by William Burroughs."
