Filmmaker David Cronenberg, also known as the “King of Venereal Horror” or the “Baron of Blood,” is both celebrated and condemned for his oeuvre of odd and unnerving pictures. Forcing viewers to question reality, normalcy, security and themselves, the Toronto native has been pushing boundaries since his first short in 1966. Currently, the Toronto International Film Festival is showcasing David Cronenberg: Evolution, a retrospective that honours nearly 50 years of his radical and groundbreaking work.
