    The sterile clean sets is a beautiful backdrop to the intense obsession we have with celebrity culture-- to the point of 'cannibalism' and disease.
    In the Blu-Ray bonus features, Brandon talks about how he got the idea for the film when he got intensly sick and he though about the deeply personal connection you experience when you have a virus in you from another person. And we all have such a craving for knowledge for celebrities and to be them and live life like them.
    I found this film very insightful, and unfortunately-- not far off from our current obsessed culture.

    Very unique and sure to be a cult classic.

    Hugely interesting concept, excellent performance and a great ending.

    I am definitely buying this on Blu-ray next month.

    Great idea, and the clinical look of the film fits very well. The film's main weakness is a rather unfocused narrative that takes a while to get moving and concludes rather unsatisfyingly: spoiler And a minor complaint: the butcher character mumbles most of his lines.
    A very promising debut feature. I look forward to the next generation of Cronenberg films.
