“Infinity Pool”: Violence and Eroticism? It will be a film for mature audiences only


Brandon Cronenbergwhich delighted the audience with its previous film, titled “Owner”, since the beginning of his career he has been compared to his father David. All thanks to the same style of his films. Now there is more comparison. David Cronenberg’s rich career also featured in a film with an NC-17 age rating. It was “Accident: Desire for Danger” from 1996.

Limiting the audience to an adult audience usually significantly reduces the chances of box office success. Therefore, the authors of films that receive the category NC-17 often decide to cut controversial pieces from them so that they can receive a lower category – R. This was the case recently in the case of the film. “Spiral: A new chapter in the Saw series”. Its writers had to rework it eleven times to get a lower age category.

According to the website “The Playlist”, the reason why the movie “Infinity Pool” was rated NC-17 is the visual violence and sexual content. The producer of Cronenberg’s film, NEON, which intends to appeal, disagrees with this classification. However, this claim is expected to be rejected. Cronenbergs theme in their work is a ready recipe for the highest society.

The heroes of “Infinity Pool” are James and Em, a couple of lovers who are just on vacation. The rest they use provides the best comfort. Outside its borders, however, there are dangerous but interesting places – we read in the official description of the plot of Cronenberg’s film. They play a major role in it Hundred Goths (“X”), Alexander Skarsgård (“Vikings”) and Thomas Kretschmann (“The Pianist”)

“Infinity Pool” is the second title released recently in the NC-17 category. The first is “The Blonde” about Marilyn Monroe. However, in the case of a movie that goes straight to streaming, the senior age category is less restrictive.
