MyLeakyBucket Posted January 29, 2003 Share Posted January 29, 2003 Not sure if the Americans have got this yet but David Cronenberg's latest offering, filmed in London, followed Ralph Fiennes as a man just released from a mental institution. The film revolves around his flashbacks which piece together why he was sent to the institution all those years ago. I'm not the biggest Cronenberg fan but I thought this was a poor movie. It started very very sloooowwwwwlllyyyy and never picked up the pace. Any time it showed any spark of Cronenberg-weirdness it just slowed straight back down again. The acting was fine and Fiennes obviously relished the role of a mumbling weirdo but the plot was flat and I never really found myself caring to know more about his background. Generally overindulgent in all. Perhaps give it a go if you are a die-hard Cronenberg fan but otherwise I wouldn't bother. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
