Dead Ringers

11 years ago at May 9 17:15

In "Dead Ringers", David Cronenberg tells the chilling story of identical twin gynecologists-suave Elliot and sensitive Beverly, bipolar sides of one personality-who share the same practice, the same apartment, the same women.

When a new patient, glamorous actress Claire Niveau, challenges their eerie bond, they descend into a whirlpool of sexual confusion, drugs, and madnes... read more

Its David Cronenberg through and through - alot unanswered and really moody. Good film though not easy viewing but well worth watching.

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 th... read more

Description: In "Dead Ringers", David Cronenberg tells the chilling story of identical twin gynecologists - suave Elliot and sensitive Beverly, bipolar sides of one personality-who share the same practice, the same apartment, the same women. When a new patient, glamorous actress Claire Niveau, challenges their eerie bond, they descend into a whirlpool of sexual confusion, drugs, and madness. Jeremy Irons' tour-de-force performance-as both twins-raises disturbing questions about the nature of personal identity. ... (more)

"4.4. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Cronenberg hyvin cronenbergläisissä body horror -teemoissa ilman sitä varsinaista body horroria. Etäinen, lähes kliininen, katsanta yhteyden, mielenterveyden ja oudon seksuaalisuuden teemoihin on kuitenkin varmaan vaikeinta, ahdistavinta ja surullisinta Cronenbergiä. Goren ja näkyvän groteskiuuden poissaolo ei anna "helppoa" hetken hengähdystä raskaalta aiheelta. Loppu musertaa. Jeremy Ironsin tuplarooli on huikea."

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"In one grave, inevitable climatic gesture, Dead Ringers simultaneously brought director David Cronenberg’s initial phase to a close and his body-horror predilections to a logical plateau. Following a series of increasingly gruesome films pitting natural order against the outgrowths of the mind and flesh alike, Dead Ringers deconstructed at an uncomfortably intimate level the psychosexual intrigue between a pair of fraternal gynecologists and a genetically unique actress as they plunge into a m"

"Cronenbergien katsominen ei ole huvittanut moneen vuoteen. Dead Ringers on taas hyvässä ja pahassa niin Cronenbergia kuin olla ja voi. Se on tylsä, masentava ja ajoittain ahdistava. Jeremy Irons narkkaa doppelgynekologiroolissa, mikä oli hienoa katseltavaa. (26.4)"
