This sci-fi body horror film tells the story of a dystopian, not-so-distant future, where humankind is learning to adapt to its synthetic surroundings and, as humans alter their biological makeup - some naturally, some surgically - the body itself becomes art.
Please note: this film contains scenes that some may find (very) disturbing.
As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
This film is more than just another horror film; it also raises interesting questions. Director David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises, Crash) says: “At this critical junction in human history, one wonders - can the human body evolve to solve problems we have created? Can the human body evolve a process to digest plastics and artificial materials not only as part of a solution to the climate crisis, but also, to grow, thrive, and survive?”
"Crimes of the Future has plenty of provocative concepts and images that will put a grin on your face". BBC
