VIDEO IS UP! David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen give a light-hearted interview with a peppy college student. Massive laughter ensues. I thought it would be impossible to love these two guys any more than I already do. If by some miracle either of you read this, please know that my soul admires you and I would like to give you a high-five. Awesome possum, indeed. Short post is short, but epic video is epic.
They tried to disable my earlier video embedding hack out of embarassment, but I think I've got'em beat with some back door tricks! Just in case they catch me and pull the video down you can try to watch it here. It's already made my day a couple of times.
Here's a trip down memory lane.
Does anyone else here even like Cronenberg? I think eXistenZ was a flawed but important movie, but the rest of the man's output springs forth from secret lakes of genius the likes of which will remain unparalleled for a long time. His films work like a secret decoder ring to our contemporary media-saturated culture. Thumbs up or thumbs down?
