It takes a series of near-death experiences dodging bullets and fanatical rebels for Ben and Nora to search the common ground so important to their future teamwork.

Spider Reviews:

There are everytime movies that folks will either see what the director was going for, or simply won't connect with the film. David Cronenberg's Spider is one of those films.Many comparisons can be made between this movie and the Ron Howard movie A Pretty Mind in that they both examine the complexities of mental illness. Whereas Howard took the glamorous Hollywood style approach -- finished with government agents and associated journeys -- Cronenberg continues to prove that less is more when it comes to film. Spider is significantly more effective in that it does not candy coat its subject, rather approaching the scenario with brute realism.Cronenberg is certainly one of the most under-appreciated and misunderstood directors of our age in terms of famous appeal. His movies are not for mass marketing and popcorn sales, but rather are psychologically and sociologically challenging to the viewer. Cronenberg movies generally demand a surrender from the audience to an unsettling reality, and Spider is no different. The fractured perception offered by the protagonist as displayed through Cronenberg's eye is truly special and refreshing.If you are the kind of person who is up for quick, simple entertainment, Spider is not your film. But, if you wish to discover a brilliantly crafted submergence into the strange reality of a mentally ill person, Spider will leave you wanting more. Cronenberg has once again proved that there are several directors of his talent and skill. His ability to make a wholly original feel in movie incomparable to any of his contemporaries is everytime welcomed by this viewer.


I've read a several of the another player comments about this movie and often words and phrases like pretentious, dull, boring, lacking in entertainment are used. All fair comments, it is definitely not a movie for a fantastical exciting escapist experience - however, I would recommend that a tiny effort on the part of the viewer will pay large dividends. The first thing to tell is that the current plot of the movie is not the main focus of the film. This is all about the madness, and subtle questions that are raised and need to be held in your mind throughout.Every stage provides vital information, but do not forget we are seeing inside the 30 or 40 year old memories of a boy who has spent most of his life in a mental asylum. I would not advise taking any stage at face value, particularly the flashbacks. It is a challenging movie and may at first seem to lack coherence, or be artsy for the sake of it. However, like the jigsaws that appear in the movie in different forms it is the final pieces that are the hardest to deal with and potentially the most dangerous. And at the end we are left with a question - is Spider's trauma the cause of his insanity, or is his insanity the cause of the trauma.


This movie kept me fully engaged during each single second. The acting was no less than you would expect from such a talented cast - brilliant performances from all. Ralph Fiennes is just superb. Gabriel Byrne in probably the most hard role of his career to date keeps the `secret' to the end. John Neville and Lynn Redgrave, deliever the helping roles with a flare that never upstages the lead actors. Bradley Hall as the Man Spider gave a fine performance as only kid actors can. But it was the Chalk and Cheese characters enjoy by Miranda Richardson that for me stole the present and clearly shows how deep her talents run.The script, adapted by the creator of the book, was strong without going over the top and was very authentic. Even throwaway lines by helping actors had meaning and helped convey the power and momentum of this masterpiece `.. seven packets of Crisps and a packet of Embassy.' Many times have I uttered related words in a London Pub.The territories were so real, you should smell and tasted them - I grew up in such a territories and in the same period as the Man Spider - each single and highly accurate feature brought my childhood memories rushing back.The storyline is true - happenings like the critical happening in this movie really did happen and still do.For international readers, England from the late 70's onwards adopted a 'Care in the Community' programme and each town and major city has halfway houses, like the one portrayed in this film, where newly released inmates of mental institutions are ordinarily just dumped to fend for themselves.This movie is nothing short of a Masterpiece - the true pity is that it won't appeal to a wider international audience.
