David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future is a film that will take the director back to his body horror roots from the looks of the trailer. The film is already expected to have walk-outs due to the The last 15 minutes which is described as a rough viewing. Of course, if this is Cronenberg going back to his roots it is easy to see how.
The Neon release has now been rated R for ‘Strong disturbing violent content and grisly images, graphic nudity and some language.’
The synopsis for Crimes of the Future goes like this:
As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice (Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Mortensen), celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
The film stars Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Scott Speedman, Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, Yorgos Karamichos, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, Welket Bungue, Don McKellar, and Lihi Kornowski.
