Cronenberg Episode 6: The Fly (1986)

The Fly is what happens when Cronenberg gets his hands on a decent story and hires some decent actors. He's back in his element with all the technofear and cartoonish gore. All three of us liked this one and pretty much agree that it's a classic. Goldblum is awesome and the drug metaphor takes this film to the next level artistically. Remake? What? Why? Where? Who? Crazy.

Goldblum is awesome, as you all insinuate.

Love the work you guys put into these episodes... i MIGHT be your biggest fan.

A potential marathon/series you guys could do: what about sort of cult status movies; some of my favories that come to mind:

the 'burbs
hot fuzz
blade runner
big lebowski

or more drug related:
fear and loathing
saving grace
