  • great picture
  • Terribly overrated film. Far too drawn out, and a real bore to watch. The characters are by no means interesting either.
  • I thought Spider was excellent. It gave you a look at how someone has lost there mind and what they live through. It is at some point during the movie a little confusing, especially at the end. But I got all of it and would see it 100 times more. If you like deep thinking intellectual movies this is the one for you.
  • horrible boring movie I ever watched...=(
  • Spider was well shot, well acted, and an interesting look at the mind of someone who`s completely lost his mind, but as great as all that was, it seemed kind of a waste. Maybe waste isn`t the best word for it, but it was very...different. By the end, I was just like `Oh, so Spider really IS crazy`. Ralph Fiennes has nearly no real dialogue, it`s mostly mubbling, but it`s a great performance as always. Gabriel Byrne played his character great, and Miranda Richardson...well, she was really the movie. Anyway, it is a good movie if you enjoy thinking, but if you want a quick fix for entertainment perposes, don`t see it. I liked it though.
  • David Cronenberg is one weird puppy. Talk about an edipus complex. Me thinks the man maybe thinks too much. Fiennes acting was admirable but there shouldn`t be an Oscar in the future for this role. I was reminded of the film "Shine". An Oscar shouldn`t be handed out for half a role. If you happen to miss out on seeing this film, breathe a healthy sigh of relief, and count yourself lucky. You aren`t missing much.
