Dead Ringers ★★★★

Cronenberg goes formal in this disturbing Hitchcockian psychodrama. Though it shares themes of loss, or mutation, of identity with the likes of Videodrome, it’s a different, more frighteningly grounded kind of body horror at work here in a tale of identical twins and the unusual woman whose presence in their carefully curated lives threatens to unravel the ties that bind them — to each other, to reality. It’s quite something.
