Ep. 2 – Psychosexual Healing: Videodrome and Cinema Violence

VHSodrome

Let’s talk about Videodrome. David Cronenberg is a master of science-fiction and horror, and this is not his best film. But it is perhaps his most Cronenbergiest, and so we have to delve into the dark danks of auteur theory and of course, the greater implications of this penis-fest. James Woods watches porn and transforms into a monster — social commentary? Actually maybe, and that’s kinda the weirdest part.

Runtime: 17:59

  1. As a reporter, my job is not to define what is ‘best’, nor, for
    that matter, what is a ‘zoo’. For while the market may be pumping out what seems like endless
    noise, if you listen. As soon as he was able, he scampered down the streets to the
    workshop.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
    to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for
    your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
