Holy titties I LOVE IT!
The score in this film, totally wicked.
The use of satiric dialogue used to mock commercialism in an age of mass consumerism by using "hotels" is brilliant, and also laughable in that Cronenberg's quirkiness shines through in much of the characters conversations.
Still trying to figure out how sex ties in, but like all Cronenberg films, sex is a thing so not sure which direction to go in just yet.
I was really attracted to the use of handheld cam movements and (seemingly) 50mm lens for like, most of the shots.
It feels so low budget which for this type of genre has proven that it can ENHANCE the storyline instead of corrupt it, and here I think it does just that.
Also love the casting choices. So many wild, unique faces on the screen. This movie would never get made today and that makes me sad, because it's epic in its weirdness.
