You thought Videodrome, Naked Lunch, and Crash were "normal"?
Haven't seen Crash,but the rest is typical Cronenberg films,so def not normal ;p
YupI think his point is when Cronenberg is weird, he's good. I disagree, I loved History of Violence, but it's a slow paced movie so I can see where someone might find it dull.
I don't mind slowpace,and HOV had some interesting scenes from directing pov,but overall meh.
But obv each has its own taste
