1999 / 97min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: DAVID CRONENBERG

CAST: JENNIFER JASON LEIGH, JUDE LAW, IAN HOLM, WILLEM DAFOE

David Cronenberg has never exactly worked in the register of naturalism, and his just-off, uncanny valley style fits this immersive virtual reality thriller like an UmbyCord in a bio-port. Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jude Law co-star in a mindbending sort-of sequel to Cronenberg’s classic Videodrome updated for the dawn
of the virtual reality era, exploring Ballardian themes of flesh yielding to new technology while whipping the viewer around countless hairpin turns.
