    “Surgery is the new sex.”

    Surprisingly moving exploration of Cronenberg’s fascination with human bodies and our symbiotic relationship with our manufactured surroundings. What worth is performance if it exists only for momentary passing pleasures? Perhaps there is worth to it, but art and presentation can be so much more meaningful.

    - You mean motherfucking Rian Johnson was casually under pressure of directing one of the biggest movies ever in the most holy grail of film franchises all the while being endlessly followed by the doc crew? I would have just cried in a corner wtf legends only
