David Cronenberg (The Fly, Dead Ringers) is one of the most unique and respected filmmakers working today. His films often explore the darker side of human nature, and he has a knack for creating unforgettable images that stay with you long after the credits have rolled. His new film, “Crimes of the Future”, is a return to form for the director, and it is sure to send chills down your spine.
In “Crimes of the Future” Kristen Stewart plays a young investigator, Timlin, who becomes intrigued by the celebrity performance artist Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen). Tenser’s art involves staging organ metamorphosis in innovative shows, and this somewhat borderline approach intrigues Stewart’s character.
French actress Léa Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Color) completes the cast. She plays Caprice, the partner of the artist who helps him to set up his shows.
“I don’t believe in an afterlife. I don’t believe in God. To me, the body is what we are. We are physical beings. The essence of coming to terms with what you are—with what the human condition is—is to come to terms with the body, and of course, that is not in a vacuum,” Cronenberg told Document in an interview. “You are a body amongst other bodies in a society, in a culture, in a world, and so on... There’s a complete interpenetration between the inside and the outside of your body. In a strange way, I guess, Crimes of the Future is very literal about that.”
Let’s dive into “Crimes of the Future” through its trailer, a real masterpiece that gives you a feeling of uneasiness and fright.
The trailer opens with shots of the main character performing on stage. We then see another character whose face is masked by stitches and sewn eyelids. All the while, a haunting voice-over explains that it’s time to stop seeing, to stop talking, and to start listening. By the end of the trailer, we are left with a deep sense of horror and a desperate desire to know more about this disturbing movie.
Blurring the lines between thriller, sci-fi, and horror, and with a stellar cast, “Crimes of the Future” is sure to be one of the year’s must-see movies.
“Crimes of the Future” will premiere on May 25, 2022, at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 17 to 28, 2022. The highly anticipated feature film is in the official selection for the Palme d’Or, the festival’s top prize.
“Crimes of the Future” will be released in theaters on May 25 in France and on June 2 in the Netherlands. The official release in theaters worldwide is scheduled for June 3, 2022.
