A great underrated movie

This movie is basically one of those that actually really shaped my movie taste. Yeah, it is that good and, the first time I saw it, I must have been 14-15 years old and it just blew my mind. Indeed, I had never seen something similar before and I have re-watched at least once every decade ever since and its impact is still very strong. At the time, in my opinion, David Cronenberg finally found the best combination between his tradermark gross horror style and some more mainsteam elements and the end-result was just mesmerizing. Obviously, it is still really creepy but the whole gimmick around twins had been done before but not with such tremendous results and, in my opinion, this movie has one of the best perfomances ever. Indeed, Jeremy Irons portrays 2 different twins so well that he managed to create two distincts individuals which were essentially identical and yet slightly different and, at some point, you get lost in the story and you have the feeling that you are watching 2 different actors who just happpened to look the same. On top of that, this messed up story about gynaecology was just fascinating as well. To conclude, it is one of my favorite movies and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in David Cronenberg's work.
