Crimes of the Future Movie Trailer
Humans have developed to the point where their bodies adapt to the realities and issues we invented in science fiction, but how does this affect the human perspective? If this sounds overly philosophical, just watch the trailer(below) for Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future, and you’ll see that he’s going deep into life’s big issues. Naturally, David Cronenberg appears to be at his best. Cronenberg, who also authored the script, appears to have gone to considerable pains to make Crimes of the Future appear as far off from our actual reality as possible, according to the video. We observe medical procedures taking place inside a sarcophagus-like structure, people with body organs in places they shouldn’t be, abstract gooey substance (there’s no other way to describe it), and people eating… plastic in the span of a minute.
In an official statement, the filmmaker analysed the film’s themes, teased fans of his work, and revealed what kinds of questions the picture is meant to raise in people’s minds:
“‘Crimes of the Future’ is a meditation on human evolution. Specifically – the ways in which we have had to take control of the process because we have created such powerful environments that did not exist previously. [The movie] is an evolution of things I have done before. Fans will see key references to other scenes and moments from my other films. That’s a continuity of my understanding of technology as connected to the human body. Technology is always an extension of the human body, even when it seems to be very mechanical and non-human.”
