EPISODE 406: eXistenZ

It’s Cronenberg time. A bit of a spiritual successor to Videodrome, 1999’s eXistenZ sees Papa Cronenberg fucking with gaming and virtual reality in his characteristically cerebral, absurd, and physically repellent way.

eXistenZ joins Dark City and The Matrix as late 90’s, pre-millenium forays into the notion of simulated reality and this is definitely the most surreal of the bunch, and possibly the most prophetic. This is Jorge’s first viewing in a couple decades and Jacob’s first ever. Enjoy and long live the new flesh!

“You’re stuck now, aren’t you? You want to go back  because there’s nothing happening here. We’re safe. It’s boring. It’s worse than that. I’m not sure… I’m not sure here, where we are, is real at all. This feels like a game to me. And you, you’re beginning to feel a bit like a game character.” It’s The Who Goes There Podcast Episode 406!
