The Death of David Cronenberg

The Death of David Cronenberg ★★★

The whole NFT thing sucks. I mean the whole thing, not just this. 

Luckily, this is currently on YouTube. 

This is a single piece of horror imagery and it’s an evocative one.

Cronenberg embracing a prosthetic version of his dead self is him in conversation with the body horror prosthetics that defined his career, as well as him showing a resonant acceptance of mortality. The uncanny aspect heightens the meta layer, a sixty second clip that will stick with you and that will inspire much more thought. It’s a one trick thing, not even a trick really, but it’s arresting as hell.
