The new David Cronenberg film is a scathing portrait of Hollywood as a place of constant terror and anxiety masquerading as a paradise of goodwill and generous feeling. But this is definitely the Cronenberg of late, and the film, while containing numerous vivid moments and blazingly wonderful performances, remains distant, chilly, and hard to undertand. But why should that stop you? It's something you need to see, although it's definitely tough to love.

It's really interesting to get a gay perspective on some of the movies I know inside and out. You've raised points that as a straight guy I've never noticed before. Then when I watch the movie in question again, I wonder "How the HELL did I miss that???"
