Cronenberg is one of my three favorite directors ever. His movies are incredibly intellectual, intelligent, psychological and philosophical. Especially my favorite one “Videodrome” is influenced by the philosophy of Jean Baudrillard and Marshall McLuhan. Cronenberg’s philosophy of the human body/flesh is very interesting. “Videodrome” is definitely one of my favorite movies and if I’d have to decide what movies is really my no. 1 I’d have to choose between “Videodrome” and “Taxi Driver”. Its the most intelligent movie I have ever seen, so full of details and interesting themes, I could only sum this up in a German essay, my English isn’t good enough for the huge and complex text I could write about this gem .
