  • (Directed by David Cronenberg; with Jeremy Irons and Genevieve Bujold) A classic of psychological terror, exploring the disintegration of the human mind. With chilling and profound mastery, Cronenberg tells the story of identical twin gynecologists--suave Elliot and introspective Beverly, opposite side of one personality--who share the same practice, the same apartment . . . and the same women. Then one special woman enters their lives. And the twins, their bizarre bond threatened for the first time, descend into a whirlpool of sexual confusion, drugs and madness.
