I could watch Cronenberg movies on an endless loop.

It's so surreal though, that it's easy to get lost by some of the more bizarre imagery. I haven't seen it in a while though, so I don't really remember what my take on the ending was. I remember basically what happens, but I'd need to see it in context again.
Yeah, like some Lynch films, I have a vague and fuzzy understanding of the point/message/idea behind the film as a whole, but if I try to focus too hard and figure out this or that particular scene, it throws my whole perception off - kind of like those 3D paintings that were really popular in the 90's that you have to 'relax your eyes' to see. It really is a great film, though. Possibly my favorite Cronenberg (but then there's The Brood and Dead Ringers...and also eXistenZ is really underrated...)

Also, Debbie Harry has never looked better.
