I did not even mention Crash, I find it so overrated and 'politically correct', I did not like it really.

I'm quite ashamed now btw, I did not even realize it was from Cronenberg Probably cause it being so different from the others I listed here and was not impressed at all by this movie...

The 'virtual reality' part of Videodrome was done even earlier by Fassbinders' in Welt am Draht 1973 (just my opinion of course ) called Wolrd of Strings I think in English. Not anything to be compared with Videodrome as movie itself, but just the VR part of it. Movies like Videodrome I consider art. Almost like a futuristic philosofer putting his work into cinema

You see The Brood btw? I found it quite scary...

@ The Deer Hunter movie. I cry my eyes out whenever I see this movie. I had an uncle served in Nam and my mom too (indirectly). My familiy was more or less raised like in the movie, immigrants spouse and the parties and stuff brings back some memories when my mom talks about her youth and we go back home to visit, I cannot watch the movie. So damn sad Hell, I'm all misty-eyed just thinking about it right now.

Deaf Null I think you're thinking of the 2004 Crash. Cronenberg directed a different movie called Crash in 1996.

So it's The most controversial film you will ever see according to the tagline and I never saw it. Rings a bell now though, I have to see it soon...Thanks TFD.

It's far from the most controversial film, but it deals with strange subject matter. I didn't think it was very good but it was worth watching for Elias Koteas' performance. Without him, the film would've sucked and I probably wouldn't have even watched it through to the end, but he stole the show and made it worth it.

I found it a bit... ridiculous if you ask me.

From what I remember a guy has sex with a deep cut in a womans leg.

Yeah.

I didn't find it as shocking as it was supposed to be.

If.... (1968) I'm sure it was considered very shocking in its time.

a bit of trivia: According to an interview with McDowell, Kubrick was interested in him playing Alex in A Clockwork Orange after seeing him in this film.
