Dead Ringers

1988 by David Cronenberg - English movie

Some movies are successful as a cinema, but they might not be easy to watch.

The story of two twin doctors, who fall for the same woman and ultimately leading to..

Well, that is it. Within the first 15 minutes, I was sure what the end would be. But still this is quite a movie as one exploring a complex relationship, which lingers between brotherly love, sex, possession and fear of lose and what not.

But the movie turns out like a horror movie, a weird thriller, which is really dark and psychic. It was like as if we have watched a movie which glorifies the life of two bloody criminals. Yes, it is a ridiculously difficult watch which might even make the viewer sick by the end of it.

Having said that, the movie is still brilliant for its performances. And anyone with a sick or stone heart might even appreciate this as a classic.
