This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve once again call upon the auspiciously enigmatic and cinematic maven Miles to help us parse through 1999's intriguingly abstruse techno-mystical game within a game within a reality within a matrix, David Cronenberg's eXistenZ.
Grab your VR headsets and get ready for a direct upload of existential dilemmas, hog expansion and warped perceptions in what some might call a precursor to Inception.
On this episode we'll talk about the perhaps collective Cronenberg family trauma manifesting as grotesque body horror art, the fatwa issued against Salman Rushdie, the cyclical nature of our world, and gelatinous reptile/amphibian cuisine.
The porpoises, midnight companions and keen observers, dare to gleam the cube once more where in eXistenZ, the truth is as elusive as a hall of smoke and mirrors and reality bends like Beckham.
Maybe the real treasure was the eXtenZe we found along the way.
