Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Eventually the clammy spell of this handsomely designed but solemnly paced movie begins to wear off, and you long for a little action or at least some fresh air.
Fresh: Cronenberg achieves a kind of heightened reality that does not resemble the real world but possesses its own internal logic.
Fresh: Papa Cronenberg must be proud, but be advised: If there's a blood test in your future, book it before seeing this movie.
Fresh: Cronenberg's directing style is elegant, all shiny surfaces and sleek camera moves, until the horror begins; then the film turns as dark and as bloody as the physical decay of its star-obsessed characters.
A chilling, darkly funny fable that deconstructs celebrity culture and the cynical corporate interests that drive it through the metaphor of designer pathogens. Brilliantly shot and convincingly acted. Watch for the extended cameo from cinema's all-time greatest space monkey.
This movie was beyond insane but nonetheless it was a really great movie. It terrifying to think if given the chance some people might actually do something this drastic to be closer to the stars they admire. But I'm not going lie the entire time i was thinking of the South Park episode about gingers... if you know it you'll get it but also I really don't mean to offend.
