In '89 Egoyan made his third feature; a feature that first put him on the world stage. 'Speaking Parts' after the fine 'Family Viewing' continued Egoyan's obsession with sexual desire, technology and the games people play. Casting was exceptional especially Gabrielle Rose as the scriptwriter. The film also began his long association with d.p. Paul Sarossy that bore fruit here. Cold; hypnotic; excellent.
