I was not particularly excited to see this one. I love Cronenberg quite a bit more than the next guy, I think, but I’m just not that into stories about Hollywood people. Maybe it wasn’t marketed quite right or something but I definitely had the impression that it was a bit more standard fare. But it was Cronenberg through and through. Supremely disconcerting, detached and cold, a quiet labyrinth of crystalline mystery, a slow-motion rape by a scientist. Julianne Moore was friggin amazing. Maybe I will go back and see A Dangerous Method now too, since I wasn’t too excited about that one either.
