Cronenberg On Cronenberg | Cosmopolis (2012)
Cosmopolis (2012)

"When Mathieu Amalric and Juliette Binoche – both French actors - said they’d do anything I wanted, they meant it. Mathieu hadn’t even read Cosmopolis when he agreed to do the role of the Pastry Assassin. When he came to Toronto for a day to do it, he said: 'Working with you is a dream but when I read the script it’s a fantastic role!' Same with Juliette. Maybe it’s a different culture? In France the idea of the director as the major creative force has always been much higher than in Hollywood."

Lol, I'm hardly taking it personal, just stating an opinion! Is there a fucking law against that in this democratic society? Just thought it would've been good to hear about those films in particular that's all!!! More

It's a list of random thoughts and moments, not a list of his best films. Maybe Cronenberg himself didn't mention those particular films in this particular segment? Why do people on this site go straight on the attack like it's some kind of personal insult? More

3 Where's Videodrome & The Brood???
Two of Cronenberg's finest films are Videodrome & The Brood but both films don't even get a mention here! The question is why as Videodrome is especially on a lot of fans lists at no1? Both films are far superior to the rather lackluster Dead Zone! However it is nice to see the excellent Scanners on there and the overlooked Naked Lunch. More
