Cronenberg's Hallucinations: A Double Bill

MUBI Special

“Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos.” ––David Cronenberg

Naked Lunch

David Cronenberg Canada, 1991

How do you film an “unfilmable” novel? If you’re mad scientist David Cronenberg, you throw out all the rules! This Burroughs adaptation is a hilarious, macabre, and unforgettable trip into a writer’s imagination. Talking beetles, insect-typewriters, smoking viscous creatures… Welcome to Interzone.

Videodrome

David Cronenberg Canada, 1983

We’re ecstatic to present two hallucinated visions by the one and only master of weird, David Cronenberg! First up is this quintessential body-horror cult classic, that grapples with pirate TV, pornography, and mass media to dramatize the contemporary cultural fear of technology and transhumanism.
