The Fly

The Fly ★★★★★

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. Davis and Getz give solid support; but it's the gradual transformation which is still fascinating today -even though some of the later scenes are obvious man in latex, you just can't take your eyes off it.
