Dead Ringers

13 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)

“David Cronenberg may not be one of my all-time favourite directors, but do admire him greatly. Even he is not a personal favourite, he is for me one of the most interesting and unique directors out there, his directing style, his themes and how he explores them and how he manages to get the best out of talented actors. He may be one of the originators of the "body horror" genre, but his films are much more than just full on gore and horror, a good deal of his films are disturbing and weird sure but there is humour and emotion in his films too.

All of this is exemplified in 'Dead Ringers'. Do consider it one of his best films and one of my favourites of his too, one of his finest triumphs and also Jeremy Irons' (have said a couple of times about loving him as an actor, one who is ” read more

The priests asks what he can do? The limbless man tells the priest to take him to the bell tower of the church. The priests does this & when they reach the top, the limbless man jumps up high enough to ring the bell using his head. So the priest decides to hire the man. That following Sunday, just mass in"

" Date: 8/9/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: It's been a while since I have seen this movie and I did buy the Scream Factory Blu-Ray recently on Amazon Prime on sale. I also want to buy it before the Blu-Ray goes out of print in the near future (Shout Factory has been losing a lot of their titles lately). I watched the 2K transfer on the second disc because that is the preferred aspect ratio from David Cronenberg. Dead Ringers is still a fantastic movie and I put it at my #5 spot in my Top "

"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."
