Crimes of the Future18

Directed by David Cronenberg | Canada | 2022 | 1h 47m | Starring Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, Scott Speedman

As humans adapt to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations. A performance artist, along with his partner, showcase this metamorphosis by growing new organs in his body. Soon, a journalist takes interest and begins to shed light on this next phase of human evolution. Pain and pleasure intersect in this sensational body-horror sci-fi, starring Viggo Mortensen and Kristen Stewart, from the mind of legendary filmmaker David Cronenberg (Videodrome, The Fly).

Reviews

‘Crimes of the Future is Cronenberg to the core, complete with its fair share of authorial flourishes (the moaning organic bed that its characters sleep in is a five-alarm nightmare unto itself) and slogans (“surgery is the new sex”).’
★★★★
Dave Ehrlich, IndieWire

‘As he did with 90s hit Crash, the director creates a bizarre new society of sicko sybarites where pain is the ultimate pleasure and ‘surgery is the new sex’’
★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
