1 Through 19, Let's Rank the Films of David Cronenberg

19. Naked Lunch
18. Crimes of the Future

    Pretty good. Though I would rank "The Brood" above "A Dangerous Method".

  • Tempus Fugit says:

    The hell is this? What's with the hate on Naked Lunch and then such a low score on the Brood? Scanners is a pretty piss-poor Cronenberg film too, even with the exploding head.

    'Naked Lunch' is a masterpiece. I expected to see that one at the top when I opened the link. It is impossible to argue 'Existenz' and 'Spider' are better films. But I admire them all, so, more importantly, happy birthday to Mr Cronenberg.

  • Milano says:

    "A Dangerous Method" is by far his best movie.

  • The Cantankerist says:

    A History Of Violence at #2? With that ludicrous William Hurt turn?

  • Colin Harris says:

    Where's 'Shivers' on this list?

  • periscope says:

    Your order is a mess, but you got #1 and #2 right. Trade 'Naked Lunch' for 'Crash' and it improves greatly.

I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
