Videodrome operates as a study in metaphysics; it draws attention to its medium and in doing so cleverly violates its fiction.

Cronenberg continues his growth out of more obvious horror realms and ups the stakes with heavier philosophical entreaties for his characters to endure.

Cronenberg, whose Max Renn might be seen as some sort of alter ego, however absolves technology from its share of responsibility for media-induced alienation.
