Videodrome. 1983. Canada. Written and directed by David Cronenberg. With James Woods, Debbie Harry, Sonja Smits, Peter Dvorsky. 35mm. 87 min.
In Cronenberg’s most articulate and disturbing portrait of the narcotic power of technology to turn fantasy into reality, Videodrome is a snuff TV show of such sadomasochistic perversity as to unleash sexual, violent, and sexually violent impulses among those who watch it.
