    ★★★

    noticing a lot of vehicle stunts in Cronenberg's pre-Videodrome work (and I haven't even seen Fast Company yet) that while underscoring his early efforts toward commercial viability, also suggest Renoir's adage about directors making only one film over and over is especially true here. His sexual anxiety, perverse frustration (and fascination) with modernity, and his absent, repressed heroes are all here. A drive-in filmmaker who goes on to make Crash has learnt to trust in his own pleasures.
