"Why should a healthy mind die just because the body is not healthy?  There just seems to be something wrong with that." - David Cronenberg in the book, _Escape Velocity: Cyberculture at the End of the Century_ by Mark Dery.

internal linkAntero Alli: "The physical body is the visible manifestation of the so-called Subconscious Mind. The body is the fingerprint of the soul, a internal linkRorschach of the Self.  Nothing can be hidden. The body communicates it all." These last two sentences may be the motto of Cronenberg's work; the unconscious is never as un-conscious as we like to think.

David Cronenberg (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian horror and internal linkscience fiction film director. He is famous for creating the genre of "body horror", exploring people's fears of bodily transformation and infection. In his films, the psychological is typically intertwined with the physical.

Cronenberg's films follow a definite progression, a movement from the social world to the inner life. In his early films, scientists modify human bodies, which results in social anarchy (E.g. Shivers, Rabid). In his middle period, the internal linkchaos wrought by the scientist is more personal, (E.g. The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome). In the later period, the scientist himself is internal linkaltered by his hubris (E.g. The Fly). This trajectory culiminates in Dead Ringers, in which a twin pair of gynecologists spiral into codependency and drug addiction.

Cronenberg's later films tend more to the psychological, often contrasting internal linksubjective and obective internal linkrealities (eXistenZ, M. Butterfly, Spider.)
