I’ve often thought that there should be beauty contests for the insides of bodies. You know: ‘best spleen’, 'most perfectly developed kidneys’. Why don’t we have standards of beauty for the entire human body, inside and out?

My introduction to David Cronenberg was catching Videodrome on TV while in the midst of a brutal fever a few years ago. It is one of the most memorable cinematic experiences I’ve ever had. I am grateful for his films because they are as thoughtful as they are disturbing - and they are a whole lot of both.
