In David Cronenberg’s 1983 classic, be careful not to succumb to the temptation of a media form that will turn you into a mindless pawn of the system–or worse: a half-man, half-kangaroo mutated killing machine. No, it’s not the internet. Beware the horrors of Videodrome.
Welcome to the inaugural episode of the Criterion Correction, with Ed and Dr. Z. Join us, two film buffs (well, one film buff and a film neophyte) as we look at the, in some ways, utterly bizarre Criterion Collection and try to make sense of what it says about film, art, and humanity as a whole. In this first cast, we’ll be taking a closer look at a movie that we first saw under…strange circumstances: Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums.
