Cronenberg on Cronenberg, by Chris Rodley

Review by Jeffrey M. Anderson

Buy Cronenberg on Cronenberg, by Chris Rodley

This series, published by Faber and Faber is invaluable. It collects various interviews with several top directors, describing their films in their own words. The Cronenberg book is arguably the most valuable because Cronenberg is vastly underappreciated and because his work is not represented elsewhere in print. The book has been in the works for several years, and includes interviews done during the time he was in pre-production on what was to become Total Recall (eventually directed by Paul Verhoeven). The more recent edition contains interviews about Crash. Cronenberg is more than a horror director. He is a brilliant man, and his theories and philosophies about human beings alone are extraordinary.
