What about RABID or FAST COMPANY?
I'm a fan of most of his films, but I have to go with THE FLY. An excellent reinterpretation of what was originally a pretty hokey (but kind of lovable) 50's SF/horror film. Probably his most commercial (and successful) film, but it still manages to contain much of his unique vision.

Videodrome is my favorite, followed by The Dead Zone, The Fly, and Scanners.

I have to admit I've never seen The Fly or Scanners, but of what I have seen, I vote for eXistenZ.

Dead Ringers but it's a dead heat between that and Naked Lunch,

A tie between Videodrome and Dead Ringers. I voted for Videodrome, though.

The Dead Zone - one of a handful of Stephen King based films I've found a lot more enjoyable than the source material...

But it was either that or The Fly by a small margin. :)

Tough choice...looking through the list, I realize how many movies DC has made that I really like. And you didn't even list Rabid or Shivers - either of which I might have chosen. But I will cast my vote for Videodrome because I think it has held up best over time. Runners-up are Rabid, Naked Lunch and The Dead Zone.

I think you can only include 10 choices in a poll. Pity, as Rabid is a lot of fun. I have never even heard of Fast Company, lol. Anyway, I have yet to see a Cronenberg film I haven't liked to some degree, but I definitely have a top 3.

1. Dead Ringers -- voted for (first Criterion I ever bought **tear**sniff**)
2. eXistenZ
3. Naked Lunch

Dead Ringers is his finest film, as a director.

I'd list that, along with The Fly, The Dead Zone, and eXistenZ as tied for my favorite.

The Fly

I can't say that I'm a huge fan of DC's movies, but when I see one, take Dead Ringers, I find myself seriously contemplating it for long periods of time. His movies are so disturbing, yet thought provoking.

For me Dead Ringers, Crash and Videodrome are my favourites. I voted for Dead Ringers.

Spider... Cronenberg is like a good wine...

I loved Spider - while it may be slow as hell, the atmosphere and freakiness of this film feels so real IMO anyway.

I'm a sucker for scanners though as well :)

What, no one's going to say M Butterfly? :lol:

I'm a big Cronenberg fan, and that's the only film of his I didn't like in any way.
