“Pure, essential Cronenberg, ‘Crimes Of The Future’ comes across as a manifesto of the Canadian director’s lingering preoccupations, the works for which he is justifiably most celebrated.”—Fionnuala Halligan, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
“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
“Provocatively feverish stuff from the dearly missed vintage annals of Cronenberg.”—Tomris Laffly, ROGEREBERT.COM
“A return to the type of gooey, gristly genre-melt that made Cronenberg both a midnight-movie icon and an international sensation. This is what the work of a visionary filmmaker looks like.”– David Fear, ROLLING STONE
“’Crimes’ is classic Cronenberg: a sci-fi fable about evolution, complete with fleshy incisions.”—Esther Zuckerman, THRILLIST
“Riveting work from Viggo Mortensen and Léa Seydoux…”—David Rooney, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
