A classic Cronenbergian body-horror fi;m with a retro-futuristic sci-fi twist, eXistenZ finds world-renowned video game designer – Allegra Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh) – on the run with a young businessman-cum-bodyguard – Ted (Jude Law) – after a crazed fan attempts to take her life at her new game’s launch event. Embedding the game within Ted’s organic tissue, the line between reality and fiction, technological and biological, begins to merge. A box-office bomb at release, eXistenZ has found widespread critical re-evaluation since its release and is now considered one of Cronenberg’s finest, most undervalued works.
