    An excellent film, one of Cronenberg's best; it really is a tragedy picture rather than horror. Sure, there's a lot of gore and a scare or two, but the true heart of this movie is a man possessed with his own obsession, consumed and then destroyed by it. It's really very sad. 8 years 1 month ago

    For a brief period this movie was part of my diet plan: I watched in whenever I got hungry. Instant appetite suppressant! 10 years 5 months ago
