David Cronenberg

Listen continuously on Mixcloud

Beyond sexuality, beyond sex, beyond gender – for Nicholas Elliott, the films of David Cronenberg are about pure transcendence, in a way that opens up the horizon to imagine a queer future. From the merging of steely chromium and pale, fishnetted thighs in Crash to fantastical dancing typewriters in Naked Lunch, Nicholas charts his love affair with the director, a romance which began during his early teenage years.
