The Cinema of David Cronenberg: From Baron of Blood to Cultural Hero (Directors’ Cuts)

Out of stock


David Cronenberg as moved from the depths of low-budget exploitation horror to become one of North America’s most respected movie directors. Since the early 1970s, the soft-spoken ‘Baron of Blood’ has attracted widespread controversies with a steady stream of shocks – sec-crazed parasites in Shivers (1975), exploding heads in Scanners (1981), revolutionary flesh technology in Videodrome (1983), mutating bugs in The Fly (1986), car crash scars in Crash (1996), and psychopathic bursts of gunfire in A History of Violence (2005). This new study provides an overview of Cronenberg’s films in the light of their international reception, placing them firmly in the cultures they influenced. It also highlights often-ignored works, such as the race movie Fast Company (1979)
