Nice Interview with Cronenberg, 11 January 2012
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Directors, The: The Films of David Cronenberg (1999)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Director David Croenberg sits down for the interview as he discusses his films and how he ended up getting into the business. Holly Hunter, Marilyn Chambers, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Ironside, Peter Weiler, Brooke Adams, Deborah Harry and Willem Dafoe are among the people interviewed and who share their opinions on the sometimes controversial director. Cronenberg starts off talking about how he thought he'd be a novelist but the New York underground movement made him realize that he could make movies. From here we learn about the making of SHIVERS, RABID, SCANNERS, VIDEODROME, THE FLY, THE DEAD ZONE, DEAD RIDGERS, NAKED LUNCH, CRASH and EXISTENZ. If you're familiar with the series then you know that these episodes are for fans of the director as well as those unfamiliar with the director's work but wants to know more about the films. Cronenberg is very open here sharing his feelings about not only his films but also other topics including his relationship with movie critics. Some of the best stories happen about the making of his early movies like SHIVERS and RABID and seeing how much money they ended up making the studios. There's also a large discussion about the controversy behind CRASH and how his agent begged him not to do it and instead wanted him to work on THE JUROR with Demi Moore. Overall this is another very good entry in the series that will certainly please fans of Cronenberg.
