stunning first film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Next Of Kin [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is a great film. Although it is only 70 minutes long, it feels substantial. It is very grainy, being a 16mm film blown up to 35mm.
I would say that Next Of Kin is a psychologically disturbing film, like many of David Cronenberg's (fellow Canadian) films, because it makes the viewer confront the instability and weakness of their own personality and body. In Next Of Kin, technology and voyeurism betray people's trust in each other, but these people conspire in their own betrayal to meet their own needs.
This is a film that you should see.
