A Subtle Yet Brilliant Film From Cronenberg
10 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While a veteran actor (Leslie Carlson) laments the state of film and film acting, a group of young children sneak a Panavision camera into the apartment where the actor resides and decide to make a film with it.

While I understand that the inspiration for this film comes from a childhood dream that Cronenberg had, I am not at all clear on why he apparently made it much later in life and threw it on as an extra for "Videodrome". But it is interesting to note that Cronenberg in 2000 is not the man he was in, say, 1980. He has increasingly moved away from experimental film and is today (2013) largely mainstream. This same film made in 1980 would have likely had a very different -- perhaps surgical -- feel to it.

What is the message (if there is one)? Hard to say. Clearly it is about youth, aging, death, and the world of film and photography. But how does the camera affect aging? The common belief seems to be that photos keep us young forever, but the man in this film says almost the exact opposite...
