Dir. David Cronenberg. 1983, 87 mins. 35mm. With James Woods, Deborah Harry. “Long live the new flesh.” Cronenberg’s fascination with the merging of flesh and technology is literalized in this philosophical horror film. A cable-television programmer of soft-core porn discovers a startling new kind of programming that offers a nightmarish version of Marshall McLuhan’s theories.
