"I guess it was and I was like, okay. Yeah. I kinda understand that. And then all of the other things, I'm just like, okay? Yeah. This moves the story along better. I kind of wish that I would have seen the cheeseburger thing that sounds like a really cool idea. But all the other stuff that I saw like, okay. Even like when he is talking about the flesh with Ronnie there are tons of little trims in there. And every single one of them. I'm like, okay. Yeah. The got to the heart of the conversation. We didn't need the filigree. What have we proved? Computers are dumb. They only know what you tell them. They have no sense of poetry. Life poetry, but steak is poetry computer is giving us its interpretation of state gets translated forests rethinking it rather than reproducing it and something's getting lost in translation. Me. I'm lost. The ghost in the machine life essence, so. And I know you're gonna say you're gonna say steak is dead short stake is dead. But it's dead life. I don't think I was gonna say. What you've already said. The flesh. It should make the computer crazy. I like those old legs pinching babies, but not yet. I haven't taught the computer to be made crazy by the flesh, a one of the things I love so much about him as a director as his films always feel even the longer ones to me his films. Always feel very economical. It's not something where you want there to be a lot of meandering get a guess for lack of better word like I tend to not like agree with you. And not feel like, oh, I wish those cut scenes had been put back in. It's like, no, they don't really belong there. Like, they're interesting to see, but they don't they're not like a crucial part of the film. That was interesting that a lot the most substantial things that they cut were the things that made him more of a villainous or monstrous or threatening character. I mean beyond even just the scene where he, you know, merges the cat and the monkey and then and then bludgeoned to death. But there was a whole sequence. I don't even know if they shot at I can't remember it's not in the deleted scenes, but it's in the screenplay where he goes out and murders a homeless woman at a time when he's kinda struggling against the flies impulses. Like, the like, the claw whatever like kills. And maybe it's not even the him of totally controlling it. But like when he goes out into the city at night on his own and kill somebody. And it's like those scenes of, you know, old fashioned monster movie menace are like the things that with the most attention things to go from script to rough cut to final cut. You know with the things that made it maybe closer to what people expect as a straightforward horror movie. I love the volition of Charles Polk screenplay into chronic Burke screen play into what we see on the screen, and that scene that you're talking about the part of him going out and the the claw coming through or the the leg coming through his side. I mean that was all shot, and that's right in Polk. Screenplay. And then yet the screenplay continues both pokes and Cronenburg's continue into that murder scene and the less became directly like pokes. The better it was not to say that poke screenplay was bad. They were really interesting ideas in the way that Kronenbourg could take those ideas and change those bring I guess while we're talking about bring his own DNA into it. And change this into another thing. Really, really smart. We talked about the way that Ronnie was introduced versus a wife character. I think it's it's her isn't our fingernails that scratch him is that right that that that's how he gets the scratch on his back where the hair to grow through. 'cause in the Polk screenplay. He adopts this cat named eager and the cat scratches him. And then he he starts to develop the hairs from the scratch and then really develop a ton of hair on the face. And it's just like, no, it's nicer that it was kind of more of a connection to Ronnie..

"Or are self socially and politically and ethically etcetera so i think that i can distil what we're talking about here using to quotes one from brian oblivion and one for marshall mcluhan so obrien oblivion says and by the way i love this actor and just the the the tampere as us voice is just so hypnotize says the television screen is the retina of the minds i therefore the screen is part of the physical structure of the brain therefore whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it therefore television is reality and reality is less than television so i'm gonna relate this to include unquote mcquillan said just as the wheel was an extension of the human foot and the axe was an extension of the arm electric media is an extension of the human central nervous system and these nervous systems will be brought together in an irresistible way and i think that it's this this nuggets of mcluhan ism that that is embodied by brian oblivion and bianca libyan and there and i think that it's so awesome because cronenburg's bc taking this nugget and taking it to the extreme with his body horror aesthetic yet and literally lising it and making something super interesting yeah i know you also have to remember that mcclellan was a catholic he was a conservative yet catholic and so when he talks about this new shift towards you know the emergence of what would then become the internet obviously he died before it was in full swing but um you know that this this shift in media technology he's looking at it as a classics professor i mean he is a trained classical scholar whose kind of bemoaning if you will the decline of of certain forms of social communication and he's very critical of this whereas david cronenberg is a straight up secular a selfavowed existentialist atheist so you know he's going to have a bit more of a sort of nihilistic take on all of this so there's actually this other guy i don't know if you're familiar.

"Watching this to me is almost this idea of it that is psychotherapy just theater right and i think that's interesting in in terms of the the time because like in the late '60s early 70s you had the beginnings of the anti psychiatry movement you know so you had a lot of people who psychology became hugely popular in the late '50s i mean this was psychology had gone from something where it was looked at as like you know only sick really messed up people you know got therapy or saw a psychologist or anything but by the late '50s it had become really invoke to lake have a therapist um and so psychology was sort of booming like through the fifties and sixties but by then by the end of the '60s there started to be a lot of scepticism about the power that psychologists and psychiatrists exerted over there patients and how easily they they could manipulate these people um and uh you know and so there were certain doctors that sort of uh you know people like ardy lang in scotland who is like a psychologist there he was sort he didn't use the word anti psychiatry but he was definitely try he was definitely going against the grain and trying to do uh alternative types of treatments um that themselves came under scrutiny later also because they were saying okay you're doing this this alternate type of treatment but year methods of treatment are actually even more cult lake then the things that you're complaining about you know so it sort of coal so interesting given that you'll cronenburg's wife went to a coal of sorts there's a sense in here that like oliver reed is playing almost a coleader right and that's very much like i feel like people looked at our delaying a bit like that too like that that people you know that he had like fans you know that just fawned over him and stuff and and so i feel like oliver reed is coming out of that tradition of these types of superstar rockstar psychologists you know um you know what did kronenbourg have against doctors just as like an overall thing they're the villains in so many of his films i mean starting with you know everything from like.

"Uh but it was sort of a horror version of criminal versus kramer because it's a film about a breakup puts a film about a husband and wife um a woman who has become very mentally unstable and her husband is trying to not only understand her but he's definitely trying to rescue their daughter from her you know like he sees her as very negative and dangerous influence on the daughter and dangerous uh physically to the daughter and this is all based on earth was inspired by cronenburg's real experience with his wife in his break up with his i believe first wife i don't know if you how many times he was married but um i think twice okay so it would have been his first wife and she had uh she had left him and joint occult of some sort in california and had kidnapped their daughter and taken the daughter to the cult and he had to go and basically kidnapped the daughter back and so this story is sort of what came out of that real story and so it's it's very much in many ways it does demonized the wife in the film like she is definitely this alien other type of creature you know but she's also very powerful uh type of primal mother type of character you know uh so samantha egger place the place the wife uh whose name is nola and art hindalco the great canadian actor art hendel he plays the um the husband and their daughter they have a daughter named candice and nola carboth who is the wife is at the beginning of the film actually for the duration of the film she's at a an institute out in the forests that's called.
