This week we discuss A Cure for Wellness (2016), Gore Verbinski's ambitious and gorgeous film intermixing The Road to Wellville (1994) and Shutter Island (2010) with a dash of Frankenstein (1931). We explore how over-eating could defeat James Bond, along with the moral sensibilities of this film (and how you shouldn't watch this with your mother), the link between eel-swallowing and mind control, the occasional impracticality of "obsession laboratory" lair architecture, and the stylings of Cronenbergian shock value in the film.
