Crimes of the Future (1970) - early David Cronenberg
Crimes of the Future is a David Cronenberg short from 1970. It involves some sort of medical institute or clinic in an odd, uneasy dreamlike world were all the women are dead and a skin disease has ravaged the population; who behave in a less than rational manner. This "creative cancer"/body revolt and evolution is another theme Cronenberg would return to often throughout his later films. The soundtrack is a highlight with bursts of low key yet abrasive, dissonant noise compromising the bulk. Non linear and also perhaps too slow moving for some viewers, this is a curious glimpse into Cronenberg's creative chrysalis of themes and visuals.
