It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...


Scanners (Cronenberg, 1980)

I wasn't really as enthralled by Cronenberg's first breakthrough feature as I thought I might be. I think in many ways his earlier The Brood is a more rewarding and interesting film. But Scanners certainly features some great scenes and wonderful characters, especially an amazingly evil Michael Ironsides.

But on the whole, the film doesn't work as well as his seemingly more personal work, or his best mainstream efforts(The Fly).
