David Cronenberg @ 70


David Cronenberg turned seventy today. I love his films. And I love his hair.

David Hudson pays tribute at Fandor.

And if you’re serious, there’s this 90-minute interview on 3sat.

    David Cronenberg says he had to sleep with the lights on after he saw “The Blue Lagoon”. That makes me happy.

    I think he’s probably talking about the 1949 film. Not the 1980 version with Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins.

    Although I find that one pretty scary.

    I am really, really, really behind on my movie watching.

    I’m edging up on 2005.

    Y’all, the Cronenberg interview is really good. I’ve been watching (okay, listening) in fits and starts.

    I wish I’d been born Canadian.

    And I really really love the hair. And the face. And the eyes, though historically, I’ve leaned more toward your Brown-Eyed Handsome Man. But I’m not set in my ways.
