07.17.22Internet Huh. To me this felt a lot like Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, where I guess it's more about the world than any kind of plot. In that regard, it's quite bizarrely intriguing. It felt in parts like Naked Lunch, probably because of the weird timeless and disconnected quality of all the sets and costumes, but with nowhere near the insane story going on. Instead, it's like... part of a story? I didn't really get where it was going and the ending felt VERY abrupt to me, like it needed another hour or something... although I guess the point was that... well, ok i guess the candy bar thing was the point? I'm not sure.

In any case, this wasn't a great movie but there were interesting and new aspects to it which I appreciate. Certainly Cronenberg, like, reclaims the crown for weird biomechanical body horror type stuff. This one's right up there with eXistenZ (the most 90s title ever) and Videodrome (although I think both those movies are better than this) in terms of weird silicone organic gadgets. I just wish there was also more to it.
