Montage of The Fly

So, in our experimental editing class we had to come up with some footage and use it to convey Eisenstein’s theory of montage. We had to use the ideology, also, set forth by Kuleshov to show how two or three images could be combined to create a different meaning (ie: shot of man + shot of soup = man is hungry). It’s a very simple idea but back when film was first being invented, it was relatively new and groundbreaking. For this project I chose some footage from Cronenberg’s The Fly. I took three vastly different moments in the film, spliced them together, and made a whole other theme. It’s broken up into three segments: basic montage, basic montage II, and a final montage. Try to guess what the last montage means.

I'm guessing he doesn't like the idea of un to under cooked meat.
