Audience Reviews for Crimes of the Future

  • Oct 30, 2009
    Despite more variety in sets and the upgrade to color, "Crimes of the Future" is actually harder to sit through than the preceding "Stereo." Like "Stereo," it's essentially a silent movie with added narration and sound effects, but the narration is sparser so the action is even more difficult to follow. The scenario: A cosmetics-related disease has killed off most of the world's women. The afflicted secrete a strange white foam which others find arousing to taste and, well, things turn weird after that. The main character is stationed at a facility which treats victims of this "Rouge's Malady," but after all the patients die, he decides to work with feet instead. Wouldn't you? It's a good film for foot fetishists, particularly if webbed toes excite you. That must have been a fun casting call. And Ronald Mlodzik (returning from "Stereo") still has a fascinating face which looks more like an art student's sketch than the mere product of sperm and egg. There is some suggestive content involving a child which is a bit unsettling but, hey, we are talking about David Cronenberg here. It's interesting that "Down the Drain," "Stereo" and "Crimes of the Future" all take place in clinics of some sort. And droll, quirky names like Antoine Rouge, Adrian Tripod and the Oceanic Podiatry Group make me wonder if Cronenberg is a Thomas Pynchon fan.

    Certainly an improvement over Stereo, Cronenberg shows he has some interesting ideas and concepts. Still, this for me didn't hold my interest too much, it was a little boring in parts. Perhaps if it had been done a little different it might have held my interest more, but the ideas are certainly present. I thought his use of sounds were rather interesting, still there is no dialogue, only the voice over narration. You could tell he had more of a budget here then Stereo and it is in colour and not black and white which I think helped this, as Cronenberg takes full advantage. There are some fantastic visuals, especially the very last scene, extremely disturbing but so well done. Seeing this you can clearly see Cronenbergs ideas for his future films.
