"Crimes Of The Future" (dir: David Cronenberg)

This very early (1970) film by now-respected Canadian director Cronenberg was written, produced, edited, and directed by him, and it shows an embryonic, if underdeveloped hint at what his future works (particularly fine films like 'Dead Ringers', 'The Brood', or 'Rabid') would become. In the grand spirit of, and dedicated to cultural engineers/literary geniuses Brion Gysin and William Burroughs, this brief synopsis is being done in a cut-up style, basically my own quick-jotted notes while watching 'Crimes of The Future'.

Cold clinical sterile expressionless
not coalescing
venereal disease hospital
harvesting renegade organs
created by bizarre disease affliction
soundtrack buzzing
chirping whining screaming
fetishistic taboo detached sexuality
Metaphysical Import/Export
research malady
