        He's the rare director who isn't above enjoying entertainment himself. Down to earth to a fault. Guy just likes making music, playing vidya, and once upon a time directing movies.
        It's what I always liked about Carpenter. The guy never got pompous.
        On top of his other talents he was also a surprisingly good voice actor.

        He needed more money and less studio interference. They slashed his budgets and he soldiered through it and made his films regardless for the love of it. Imagine if Ghosts of Mars had $40 - 50 million, it could’ve been amazing. It was just too ambitious of a project without the budget to realize it.

    It’s pretty good, but he’s way too in your face about the message. A lot of people hated it because of the directing, but it makes sense. It’s a world without sex or emotion, people are stiff and only get off to the idea of violence, bloodshed, and body horror, the kinds of things people in the 70s and 80s screamed at in theaters. Old sex, new sex. Scalpels and surgeries because disease and infection is gone. The deepest part imo is that our sex is the old sex and it’s pretty much gone because sex is pain and pleasure and with humans no longer able to feel pain, sex is no longer pleasurable.

      Cronenberg has always worn his themes on his sleeve. it makes his films endearing and also somewhat frustrating in that a subtler hand might resound more than his play at it. I think it's leaps and bounds better than his previous few films.

    I thought it was excellent, but you have to be able to enjoy a movie for its ideas because the plot and characters are really subdued. I saw it with a few friends and some of us loved it while another was disappointed that it "didn't have any action."

    What was the point of viggo working with the cop? It came out of nowhere and didn't pay off. Also maybe because of the internet nobody really gets shocked anymore but I thought the movie would be way more grotesque because other than the silly autopsy, everything was really tame, I was so ready for a real hardcore ending but the movie just stops when he realizes he needs to eat purple candy.

      I was the only person in the theater when I saw it last weekend. My favorite line was after Viggo got the zipper installed on his stomach. His partner started performing oral sex on his organs and he said "don't spill"
      I didn't really understand the ending.
      How was he able to eat the synthetic food? He spent the whole movie having his new organs cut out of him. Was it just supposed to be symbolic?

      I didn't really understand that either. What was his motivation for working with the cop? Was he scared of being arrested or killed because he was getting more well known? I thought he would be safe from that because he was rejecting the new evolution. It also didn't seem like Viggo disliked other people who were allowing the changes to take place.

        Maybe his body kept re-growing the plastic digesting organs every time he cut them out because that was always the only type of food his body knew how to eat. I thought that was the entire point of him having trouble eating normal food throughout the film, that was him denying his true nature to himself

        you guys missed the part when Viggo said he personally hated the new organs? not saying it was the proper way to go wit the story, as I don't believe the original screenplay had this cop stuff, but I don't see it as out of nowhere. there' s some motivation there even if it's murky.

        He is an ex-cop himself, he met caprice whenhe got wounded in the line of duty, It only makes sense that it turns out he is undercover as a law goon in this new vice thing. He may have become an underground artist on his own perhaps, but ex-cops are always half-cops and being not too old and a perfect profile for this task it makes too much sense, you saw how the illegal gallery would do anything to work with him.

      Saul Tenser explains that he doesn't like the new and strange direction of human evolution, that's why he removes his novel organs. He works with the cops to enforce these norms.

      I was the only person in the theater when I saw it last weekend. My favorite line was after Viggo got the zipper installed on his stomach. His partner started performing oral sex on his organs and he said "don't spill"

      >How was he able to eat the synthetic food? He spent the whole movie having his new organs cut out of him. Was it just supposed to be symbolic?
      For most of the movie Saul actively fights against his accelerated evolution due to his internalized disgust at his new body, later in the film when they're busy with the autopsy project he allows his novel organs to grow, and the plastic eaters show him that he's been living in pain and discomfort trying to fight who he really is. The final shot is his epiphany when he eats the synthbar.

      It depicts a future so foreign and disconnected from us that it seems completely pozzed, with good reason. Viggo doesn't have a choice, however. I empathize with his disgust but he has to accept his plastic eating reality; his entire body is pushing towards that.

It's about how art, art appreciators, and artists are little more than layabouts with a sense of self-importance. They're not evolving human development, they're just creating the grotesque and reinforcing each other by pretending there's something beautiful in the result.

      no that's exactly what it is. it's a genre body horror film wrapped in a satire of the art world. it's also makes fun of all the current body modification weirdos. one of the funniest moments was when lea seydoux was talked into getting those horns or whatever on her forehead and the first thing i thought was that she looks like a complete moron...then the first thing viggo does is make fun of the way it looks

        Yes because for most of the movie Saul is a self loathing stick in the mud who hates his own body. In the end he finally embraces change.

                We actually have no way of knowing whether the kid could naturally digest plastic in the first place. Writing that the evil government lady probably surgically removed all the plastic eating organs offscreen doesn't mean she actually did or that the kid plastic eating wasn't going to kill him before his mother did. If Dave wanted the kid to be a natural plastic eater and for the evil government to have covered it up, he would have had the main character discover so, instead of have the last shot of the movie be of his stupid face the moment before death so that liars can watch an ending explained video and be absolutely sure of whichever of the two clearly ambiguous outcomes to which the video person came.

      The movie is about a man who rejects the evolution of his body. It ends on a cliffhanger of him finally succumbing to and seemingly accepting his evolution. Obviously people expected a third act where he reconciled his newly evolved form and how he would stand for a cause he was supposedly opposed to in the beginning. Either Cron didn't have the artistic integrity to make a statement or he ran out of money.

      "Necessary" is a self defeating concept in art, if something is beautiful it justifies itself. The human form is inherently interesting and beautiful, which is why its been depicted in visual art for millennia, and its inclusion in cinema needn't justify itself any more than the visual excesses of Fellini and Greenaway movies need to justify themselves.

    Nah, it's a genuine master piece very few people will want to understand, because their brain shuts down over body horror. I really enjoyed the progression of Saul's character, he thought he was doing provocative art by removing his new organs, but it was actually bore out of fear. That's why the vice unit was easy to support him, they were ideologically aligned, but he refused to believe it. When he ate the plastic, he created the art he thought he was making for the first time. Him coming to terms with the unknown, and becoming a synth was unrivaled kino. I could go on, but I wont. You'll just have to watch it yourself.

    I was pretty disappointed despite being excited for it. There are a lot of potentially interesting ideas which are never really fleshed out into a proper narrative. The dialogue often sucks and is sometimes so awkward it comes across like some college student's first draft script. Sort of gave the impression of being a low budget pandemic film which a bunch of generally talented people made because they were bored, but didn't care enough to do more than one take for most scenes.

      The Fly deviates heavily from the rest of Cronenberg's films. It is among his least challenging films. Dead Ringers was over a decade in the making – no actor wanted to play a gynecologist, let alone twin gynecologists – and put him back into relative obscurity with its release. There is a love triangle in that film as well, yet it's nowhere near as accessible / appealing as the one in The Fly. It speaks for itself that this and Scanners are the reasons Hollywood was fleetingly interested in Cronenberg, and offered him Star Wars and Top Gun no less.

    they live in a hut somewhere, they walk into a dead town with almost no one inside

    they enter the organ department and its mostly empty

    it's all lame crap, Cronenberg should go back to making movies like A History of Violence and Eastern Promises

    no more than Men was.

    offputting cinema is anathema to normies. I appreciate that these kinds of films still get made.

    It wasn't quite as goofy as the trailers made it seem, but it's just a mixtape of ideas from his older better films.
    Ending seemed really abrupt. The definitely should been shot on film, the digital cinematography just looks drab.

    Kept waiting for Stewart and Seydoux to get naked and bump titties but it never happened. But both of their characters are completely infatuated with viggo's decrepit 60-something character the whole movie. Wish fulfillment on cronenberg's part I guess.

    feel like its in line with his 90s films, both content and quality wise. like crash, it has a weird concept at the heart of it where commentary on art, sex, spirituality, morality all interesect. loads of cronenberg motfs are featured.

    i didn't follow what the relevance of the whole inner beauty pageant intrigue was, but other than that it was a pretty comfy sci-fi noir. the sets, locations and (most of the) effects are kino as fuck. wish it ran for a little longer tbh
