I generally really like Cronenberg but I can see how some of his better efforts don't work for some. Eastern Promises, Dead Ringers, Videodrome and Naked Lunch are legitimately damn good. I really liked A History of Violence but when re-watching recently it didn't hold up quite as well as I remembered.
His stuff just doesn't jive with me for some reason. His style just adds too many spices to the pot and it turns out to be a mess. He's not straight forward, he's no abstract. It's like going for sushi and then vanilla ice cream while drinking red wine.

All good stuff but it somehow gut lumped into contradicting pile of poo.
