Crimes of the Future (2022)

David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future (2022) is sparse, constrained, perhaps a little lost, certainly in a world of its own.

Celebrated performance artist Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen) has accelerated evolution syndrome, his body is constantly developing new organs. At public surgeries Tenser removes and exhibits his mutated organs.

Part body horror, part bureaucratic nightmare, Crimes is a more contemplative film than the grizzlier body horrors of earlier work, feeling more like Spider (2002) than Rabid (1977).

That said, the man has more ideas floating around here than you’ll see in half a dozen other films combined.
