Spider gets off last, feet shuffling, perpetually astonished by the hustle and bustle of the world as well as th... read more

Spider (Ralph Fiennes) reconstruye el relato de su pasado en lo que parece la búsqueda de una explicación a su situación actual: recuerda y escribe en un horrible cuaderno de notas. La interpretación de Fiennes es muy buena y la dirección logra que uno vaya involucrándose cada vez más con el personaje. Aunque el ritmo del relato puede exasperar por su lentitud, se asocia al farragoso trabaj... read more

Before going a little more mainstream and finding a new muse in Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg made this very bleak feature. Honestly, it has been a while since I saw this one and I should definitely re-watch it whenever I get the opportunity. The point is that, like most of the movies directed by David Cronenberg, it is not very pleasant to watch, it is very dark and bleak but there was defini... read more

A good movie

“Before going a little more mainstream and finding a new muse in Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg made this very bleak feature. Honestly, it has been a while since I saw this one and I should definitely re-watch it whenever I get the opportunity. The point is that, like most of the movies directed by David Cronenberg, it is not very pleasant to watch, it is very dark and bleak but there was definitely something quite mesmerizing about the whole thing. Indeed, I have a (rather creepy) fascination towards mental diseases and this movie gives one of the most heartbreaking and spellbinding depiction of schizophrenia I have ever seen. To make things ever better, this disturbed main character was played by Ralph Fiennes , one of the best actors of his generation, and he gave one of his best perf” read more

"16/07/2012 A History of Violence, Eastern Promises ja Videodrome ovat kaikki erinomaisia Cronenbergejä ja myös ainuat pätkät mösjööltä, mitkä olin ennen Spideria katsonut. Elokuva hehkuu potentiaalia mutta osa tuosta tuntuu aivan hukatulta. Twisti on ihan nokkela ja toimivakin ja Britannian maalaiskylämaisema on karuudessaan ahdistava ja kaunis. Mielisairas päähahmo on rakennettu varsin hienosti oman tien kulkijaksi, joka kuvataan yhteiskunnan hylkiönä jonkinlaisena haamuna vain ih"

" Honestly I don't have a precise complain about this motion picture. The casting is O.K., the production is great, the direction too. I consider the script ideas original and interesting, but the way it was put into practice didn't work in some crucial points of the story."

" Rewatch But this time with Cronenberg's director commentary/walk-through. Cronenberg speaks in a very plain and straightforward style, but he's also very articulate and precise in the way he discusses the film. I found both the commentary and the corresponding visuals of the film wholly absorbing and fascinating and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to dig into this movie deeper. Cronenberg isn't afraid to repeat himself when there are certain ideas that he wants to hammer home, and this i"

"First viewing - Feb. 8th I decided to watch both of my selections from jaytoast's films as a double feature, and wound up spending a night with a pair of schizophrenics (which makes 4 movies in a row that deal with varying degrees of unhealthy mental states). Here we have a slow burner as Ralph Fiennes's titular character explores his past by revisiting the area he grew up in, and I was completely blown away by his performance. Fiennes really disappears into his character, and even if this isn'"

"Watched: 22.10 --------- Erittäin kutkuttava tarina siitä kuinka lapsuudessa sattuneet tapahtumat vainoavat vielä aikuisenakin, tai itse asiassa koko loppuelämänkin. Cronenberg hoitaa jälleen homman hienosti kotiin ja näyttelijät ovat iskussa etenkin Fiennes."
