Storyline

Una parte importante del mito y el misterio inherente de cualquier moto de época, realmente no es su rendimiento en las carreras ó las cifras de sus éxitos en competición, son las emociones que genera y el impacto que tiene en la vida de su dueño. En 1976, la Ducati 900 Desmo Super Sport era ese tipo de máquina y el canadiense David Cronenberg ilustró en la teleserie "Teleplay" su gusto por la "Italian Machine". Historia sobre la relación del hombre con las máquinas, moral, seducción y cultura contemporánea. Episodio escrito y dirigido por David Cronenberg para la serie canadiense Teleplay, cuyo objetivo era destapar nuevos talentos canadienses a través de historias independientes y sin nexos comunes.

creepy shorts twilight zone style
14 February 2005 | by zroSee all my reviews

Cronenberg produced, i believe 3 shorts for this series. The Italian machine probably the best. not a gore fest like contemporary fans might expect. All three shorts are psychological thrillers in nature. The Italian machine is about a bunch of biker dudes who track the life of an expensive bike and find that it is recently purchased by some yuppie art snobs. disgruntled by the idea that rich bourgeois are going to use the bike as a center piece rather than ride it, they decide to investigate... interesting po-mo (post modern) discussion of art ensues.

Also in the series (only available from Euro-films...as pirated off Asian television, i believe) is cronenbergs "carnival of souls"-esquire adventure, where a boarding house serves as a vehicle for purgatory. http://www.eurofilmsltd.com/catalog/d/cronenberg.html
