Description:
This 1983 essay collection, the first book on the films of David Cronenberg, takes a critical look at the directors films up to his adaptation of Steven King's The Dead Zone. Despite having yet to break out of the horror genre—he was still known at the time as the Baron of Blood—the visual, philosophical, and psychological ideas Cronenberg would explore over the next thirty years were already in evidence in films such as The Brood, Scanners, and Videodrome. The five critical essays in The Shape of Rage approach Cronenberg's work from a variety of different angles—there's even one on comedy—but the real find here is the lengthy interview with the man himself. An absolute necessity for film students and Cronenberg fans.
