Audience Reviews for Stereo

  • Apr 23, 2016
    Cronenberg's first film should only please fans of his work, since it borders on pretentious (it is even hard to know weather it is meant to be taken serious or not) with poorly-edited, seemingly random images accompanied by a voice-over that is pure tedious psychobabble.

    Call this one an interesting failure. "Stereo"'s minimalism is compelling -- the film is black and white, and entirely silent (not even music) except for intermittent narration by a variety of speakers. The story involves a scientific study which induces telepathic bonds between a small number of subjects. Sexuality (both hetero- and homo-) comes into play as an enhancement of the telepathy's potency, and eventually this has a side effect of physical violence for reasons which were not all that clear to me. The flat, academic narration becomes a chore to process after awhile, and its intense, deadpan concentration on "big words" hinders efforts to pluck out the central plot advancements (which the visuals can't communicate on their own) . Still, the cinematography is stylish and the emergence of Cronenberg's favored techno-sexual themes is notable.

    Good to see early Cronenberg being such a huge fan. But this is not very good, it is rather boring and not all that interesting. When you read what it is about it sounds interesting but the execution of it, is not however. Due to budget there is no music, no sound what so ever, only the narration voice-over. The characters in the film, well half the time I can't tell what they are doing, with no sound it makes it all the more difficult. It is a bit too long, but the themes presented in this are typical Cronenberg, a sign of things to come.
