With Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jude Law, Ian Holm, Christopher Eccleston, Sarah Polley, Callum Keith Rennie

Directed by David Cronenberg

eXistenZ, Cronenberg is back on familiar territory, very much in the vein of Videodrome. But in stead of people getting sucked into television broadcasts, here they become part of a biologically connected videogame. With politically-driven motivations, a virtual-reality game designer is sucked into a dangerous world where her game design (and herself) is the target, reality and fantasy overlapping liberally. If you’re not familiar with Cronenberg’s work, you may find this a bit odd, but once you let your rational thought processes go, and allow him to take you on the ride, it’s quite something.
