An interesting look at the early films of David Cronenberg. Originally published by the the Academy of Canadian Cinema and edited by Piers Handling, this collection of insightful essays goes up to Videodrome (1982) and was released while Cronenberg was still exclusively involved in the Canadian film industry. His early movies are harsh marvels of horror. Even Rabid, with Marilyn Chambers and her vampiric armpit is a eerie jewel of unease and terror. He had a vision in the early films that seems a bit lost now, even though he remains one of my favorite film directors. If you like Cronenberg films, it would be to your advantage to hunt down this elusive book. Mine is signed by Cronenberg so keep your hands off of it!
