Gynecological tools for the study of mutant women.

Last night, eager to see this movie that's been long out-of-print, I rented DEAD RINGERS from this great, rare video store near me called Movies Worth Seeing.

Jeremy Irons gives this freaky, fantastic performance as twin gynecologists who routinely trade lovers. The movie shows them as they go from being pioneers in medicine to, well, rather disturbed individuals.

It's David Cronenberg, so the movie's more than a little sick. But, wow, it was good. And Irons is fantastic.

They're re-releasing it on DVD next month. It's been out-of-print a couple years.
