Crimes of the Future

"His filmmaking is often noted for its surgical precision, a cliché that aptly evokes the discipline of his narrative construction and the suavity of his compositions. His aesthetic acts as an anesthetic, opening us up — much as Caprice opens up Saul, and vice versa — and imploring us to consider what awaits our planet, our children and the precious internal circuitry that makes us human. "And also, inevitably, to laugh. Cronenberg knows how to turn exposition into droll comic poetry. The future is grim, Cronenberg might be saying, but it also looks hilariously out-there. And by out-there, of course, he very much means in here."
— Los Angeles Times

As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice, Saul Tenser, celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin, an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
