It's an uncomfortable watch, the main theme is all kinds of wrong; but it's such a well made, engrossing movie.
I'm a huge Cohen fan and so this documentary was a must.
This turned out to be a blessing and a curse, because although it's always great to see footage of Cohen, the story itself offered nothing I didn't already know, other than about Marianne's Son. (Sadly, there was no conclusion offered on what happened to him).
Some interesting talking heads, including an amazing Aussie, not enough of the songs (rights?), but overall it was decent enough.
A couple are haunted by the reappearance of his dead girlfriend every time they have sex. A brilliant concept, marvellously realised in this bloody, icky, pervy little Brit Flick, which I loved.
My only concern was that it kept appearing to end, and then went on a bit more. However, on reflection, I think it needed that extra breathing space, in order to deliver the full force of the ending.
One of my favourites of Frightfest 2015.
Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!
Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
