He will also host a screening of his 1993 film M. Butterfly following his awards ceremony on the Lido on Sept. 6. While not his most successful film, Cronenberg considers it one of his most personal films. The film is loosely based on true events, with the screenplay written by David Henry Hwang, based on his play of the same name.

We watched "M. Butterfly" just recently. Good film.

I've loved Cronenberg since I was an impressionable child and saw Shivers.
Until Cosmopolis. That was a total POS. Nothing to do with Robert Pattinsons involvement
in Twilight {never bothered witth any of that} I just found it unwatchable.
Loved Eastern Promises though. I have to catch up with his stuff.
Kind of weird when one of your heroes  lets you down though.
Cant really expect any less from Cronenburg. Guy's a genius.

Shivers and Rabid blew me away when I was a kid. He was so good at making something truly creepy on a low budget. And when he advanced to higher budgets, he continued to make great movies. The Brood was extremely freaky.

Cronenberg hasn't done body horror in ages.

Agreed. But it seems it will most likely still be the descriptor that will stick with him until he's forgotten by the last person on Earth.

He's not making any movies anymore. He's officially retired. "Maps To The Stars" was his final FU to the movie-making business.

He's an author now. And a damn good one too.

The only time you're gonna see his name on film is following the words "based on characters created by" and "based on a screenplay originally created by*" in the credit sequences of the hundred remakes of his work that are in various stages of the Production Pipeline.

D.C.'s fellow Canadians The Soska Sisters (Jen and Sylvia), helmers of the terrific body Horror pic "American Mary", are ass-deep in remaking "Rabid" now.

And remakes of "Scanners" and "Videodrome" have been slowly making their way through "Production Hell" for the last decade.

/*or words to that effect.
//he lost his wife of many, many years last year to cancer. So it's good to see him out and  about and being sociable.
///he's hinted in recent interviews that if he ever does get back in the film-making business it will be something long-form for a Netflix or a Hulu.

The parasite lived in the armpit in Rabid, not the ass.

Eastern Promises is one of my all time faves.
