Mi è piaciuto molto: il classico mito del dottor Frankenstein sul delirio di onnipotenza dell'uomo che si trasforma in una storia di maternità, di conflitto tra creatore e creatura e di anarchia del potere. Bello il finale anche molto inquietante. Splendido il design della Dren, uno dei "mostri" più belli che mi sia capitato di vedere di recente.
You sick, talented bastard. Way to go. I used to wonder why there was so little of this. We live in a world of transhumanism euphoria, of tattoos and all sorts all body mods becoming mainstream, of millions dreaming of the singularity. But still, to actually see this seems too much. We can dream of a machine dominated world. Of fusion with machines. But this seems really disturbing. Seems wrong. That's interesting.
Like Natali's previous film CUBE, SPLICE had a lot going for it with a great premise. With the main focus on the scientists' motivations but lacking developed backgrounds, SPLICE results in disjointed scenes and last-minute plot gap fillers. What Natali does manage to push through the cracks however, is the underlying fear that Scientists can lose sight of impacts in their work when driven to find a 'breakthrough'.
In this humdrum, if androgynously NC-17, retelling of Frankenstein, Adrien Brody has sex with it (when he thinks it's a "she"), then it turns into a he, impregnates Brody's girlfriend and then kills him. There. I just saved you 1 1/2 hours of your life. The creature didn't waste its time on bad movies, it LIVED! Get out there and murder and explore your sexuality.
