Seems to me that in the Cronenbergverse it would not be inappropriate to make being a doctor a crime punishable by the death penalty.

I remember reading the description of the film and being like "Well this just sounds ridiculous." But I thought I would give it a whirl since it's Cronenberg. I was so impressed how disturbing it was.
