Crimes of the Future

Crimes of the Future ★★★★★

The space between organs and flesh where the cosmos lie. Perhaps simultaneously Cronenberg's most cerebral and impassioned work to date; the film does not attempt to redefine the body nor its purpose(s) because that would constitute an absolute rigidity rather than the malleability that Cronenberg's love letter herein is addressed to. Crimes of the Future should not be understood as a reconfiguration of what has been previously established (the body) but instead as an ode to the body and its vast capacity to adapt and familiarize itself with new environments immediately upon the moment that it makes contact with the atmosphere(s) of the otherworldly. The body is love and the body is life and the body is the very center of the universe, as per the clear-cut ethos of Cronenberg's latestage opus.
