David Cronenberg directs Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart in this body horror sci-fi where a visual artist grows new organs in his body and his creative partner removes them for gallery shows.
Very dry. Lots of exposition in deadpan by characters with thesaurus sourced names. Had a little nap towards the end but Natalie assures me I didn’t miss too much nudity or biomechanical furniture devices. Kristen Stewart floats around like a curious little bureaucratic Tinkerbell… but not in nearly enough scenes.
