Crimes of the Future

As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission — to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution. Directed by the ever-provocative David Cronenberg. (R for grisly and violent content, 1h 47m)

“It’s marvelous to have Cronenberg back and to behold his undimmed, unparalleled skill at welding the formulations of horror and science fiction to the cinema of ideas.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“The film is not exactly a glowing prediction of a happy future. Far from it. But the freak-out chemistry between Seydoux and Mortensen is bizarrely comforting in its way.” – Billl Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
