David Cronenberg Retrospective: The Brood

David Cronenberg: Canadian by birth, madman by the grace of God.

There’s an expression that says Hitchcock figured out tension; Spielberg mastered awe; Lucas nailed artifice.  Cronenberg, on the other hand, figured out something altogether different.  From his earliest efforts (Rabid, Shivers), through his 1980s output (Videodrome, The Fly), to his more recent films (History of Violence, Eastern Promises), a couple of very particular threads run through his work.  The first is biological horror – the sensation of watching your body change, turn into something alien, something that you can’t necessarily control.  The second is the force of manipulation, and its consequences.

I find myself bankrupt of words powerful enough to express my profound relief at this news: the imprudent remake of Oldboy directed by Stephen Spielberg and starring Will Smith has been squashed. Guys, I actually like Stephen Spielberg. I totally LOVE Will Smith. But this was the worst fucking idea ever conceived in Hollywood, the city that is bringing us White Chicks 2. Oh by the by, Will’s now going to be starring in the adaptation of Flowers for Algernon so…there’s that.

Oh man, this news is so geeksweet I can barely type it for spazzing! PAM GRIER IS JOINING THE CAST OF SMALLVILLE AS AMANDA WALLER. Dudes! The casting is so epic and the plot implications so thrilling that I absolutely cannot WAIT for her arc to begin. ZOMG!!
