REVIEWS

“The keynote address in what has become—rising out of the neurotic bath of 1970s exploitation films—one of world cinema's most original and discomfiting visions, this 1988 masterwork by David Cronenberg has aged into a kind of subterranean sacredness. Name another film that takes as many risks, runs its astonishing course with such a steady hand, and has as much to say about brotherhood and corporeal transience.”
– Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice

“Cronenberg pulls us deeper and deeper into his harrowing tale of separation and loss, the disturbing, cathartic power of which leaves one drained but exhilarated.”
– Time Out  (London)

“Watching Ringers is not unlike watching a critical operation -- unnerving but also enthralling.”
– Desson Howe, The Washington Post
