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. ♥

"robocop is getting high on gay mugwump juice? few films have destroyed my mind completely while watching them on acid. i never recovered from this one. the scene where he talks to him telepathically while his mouth is saying other things, i literally almost ran out of the room yelling ''too much, it's too much''"

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.

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

"I usually quite like stuff from David Cronenberg but this is probably the least enjoyable movie I've seen from him. It's one of the most twisted and strange movies I've ever watched. I didn't get the story, and the movie doesn't make much sense to me though it is stylish & visually impressive as one would expect from Cronenberg. Not recommend to the mainstream viewer, although others may love it. "

"June 14 "I understood writing could be dangerous. I didn't realize the danger came from the machinery." I decided to watch this movie after having it in my want to watch list for so long. This was a very weird movie. The premise is original, the acting is great and the visuals in this movie were very bizarre. This was a great movie and I'm glad I finally took the time to watch this."
