The Fly

The Fly(1986)

This movie was exasperating. The tragedy of our own twisted physical nature betraying our intentions is a basic human struggle and can be conveyed so powerfully through visual storytelling, and this movie decided instead to have Jeff Goldblum run around in a meat suit and act cranky. It really ceased to be compelling as soon as he began his descent into an overly-intense, pimply, decomposing jerk. A remake could be awesome, the premise is awesome, I just was not very moved. The first part of the movie was incredible though.
