Parece que me estoy aficionando a hacer pequeñas reseñas. Se vienen cositas gente. En fin, The Fly. Habíendola terminado hace segundos hay que decir que esta es la mejor película que he visto de David Cronenberg.

Horror: To the modern audience he is known for crime-thrillers but to fans he is best known for the 80's body-horrors which had originally propelled him to stardom. The Fly is his best effort to date. Chris Walas's ground-breaking imagining of what would... read more

Description: David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 classic transcends its genre to become a moving portrait of a man and his lover attempting to come to terms with his physical disintegration. "The Fly" stars Jeff Goldblum as a spaced-out scientist who invents a genetic teleportation machine and accidentally transforms himself into a fly. In the horrifyingly graphic detail that is his trademark, Cronenberg depicts the scientist's painful mutation from human into insect. What gives the film its tragic dimension is the emotional depth of the relationship between the scientist and his journalist girlfriend (Geena Davis) as she witness ... (more)

“Parece que me estoy aficionando a hacer pequeñas reseñas. Se vienen cositas gente.

En fin, The Fly.

Habíendola terminado hace segundos hay que decir que esta es la mejor película que he visto de David Cronenberg.

Y me parece que lo es no sólo por cómo la disfruté sino porque agarra todo los elementos que los caracteriza y los ejecuta muy bien.

Tienes un tema principal expuesto a través de alguna alteración genética/física, pura asquerosidad y desagrado visual por este cambio progresivo y un final verdaderamente horrible por lo triste que es.
