“As another 21st century art object, not a u0026quot;movieu0026quot; which is an early 20th century concept, this delivers everything the brand name (David Cronenberg) promises. Plus itu0026#39;s pretty high-brow. Superior production values but I really think itu0026#39;a more of a moving painting.
