David Cronenberg’s masterpiece was so far ahead of its time that it still seems a miraculous anomaly today. Jeremy Irons plays twin-brother gynecologists, one an introverted medical genius, the other a master schmoozer and ladies’ man. They share a career and, secretly, share women, an arrangement upset when a patient played by Geneviève Bujold enters the picture. Cronenberg expands and deepens his trademark body horror into a truly profound exploration of addiction and codependency. -LG
