Event

Videodrome (1983) + eXistenZ [double feature]
Wednesday and Thursday, September 11-12, 2013:

Two by David Cronenberg

VIDEODROME
1983, Canada, 87 minutes, 35mm, Universal Pictures
Written and directed by David Cronenberg
Starring James Woods, Sonja Smits, Deborah Harry,
Peter Dvorsky, Leslie Carlson
Wed & Thu: 7:30 pm

"As technology becomes more advanced, Cronenberg explores not only whether it will affect our sense of reality but also our evolution as a species. His Videodrome is a postmodern masterpiece that unsettles, shocks, and provokes."
- Jonathan Crow, AllMovie.com

"Videodrome is arguably one of Cronenberg's best horror films, and it holds up brilliantly."
- Staci Layne Wilson, About.com

"There's little denying that Cronenberg was way ahead of his time with much of Videodrome."
- Scott Weinberg, FEARnet

-----

PLUS, on the same program:

EXISTENZ
1999, Canada/UK, 97 minutes, 35mm, Park Circus/Miramax
Written and directed by David Cronenberg
Starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jude Law, Ian Holm,
Don McKellar, Callum Keith Rennie, Sarah Polley,
Christopher Eccleston, Willem Dafoe
Wed & Thu: 9:20 pm

"While weaving fresh variations on familiar Cronenberg themes, the film also proffers intriguing metaphors about the role of the artist in a consumer-driven world, and the ambivalent effects of fetishised, thrill-based entertainment. Most welcome, however, is the playful wit - unprecedented for Cronenberg - and the pacy, tortuous narrative, a series of Chinese boxes which leave fugitives and viewers alike wondering where in hell they are and what could possibly happen next. Dark, delirious fun."
- Time Out

"With a plot that folds in on itself and then proceeds to twist and turn until arriving at a very different place than it began, this science-fiction horror film from writer/director David Cronenberg is every bit as stimulating, absorbing, intelligent, and difficult to watch as his best genre films, The Fly (1986), Dead Ringers (1988), and Naked Lunch (1991)."
- Karl Williams, AllMovie.com
