The Fly

David Cronenberg

by

Published December 08, 2005.The FlyDirected by: David Cronenberg(Fox)David Cronenberg's best film is also his most mainstream, largely because its ickiness is universally shared. In the story of scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), Cronenberg's remake of the Vincent Price B-classic combines the repulsion of insects with fear of disfiguration. The 160-minute documentary included is an embarrassment of riches.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
