Here boy, here. C’mon fella. You and me. You and me are going to make good friends’ (Cronenberg, 1976). However, in the general schema of social order illustrated by the inhabitants of Starliner Towers, Nicholas is somewhat atypical. All of the other inhabitants, once infected, are driven outwards (whereas Nicholas shows increased introspection) in order to further spread the parasites.

This means that [w]hile perverts see more clearly than neurotics the architectonics of social life, they have less space to fool themselves, and without an other underfoot their capacity to foment dreams and expectations is seriously undermined. (Feher-Gurewich, 2003, 192) Thus it becomes possible to see the radical potential offered to the heretical filmmaker by the act of positioning the spectator in a perverse position, with relation to the film, its content and, crucially, its apparatus. The standard cinematic apparatus that works towards providing spectatorial satisfaction (and, hence, ideological effects) cannot operate within a perverse position; while aware of the gaze (and hence, desire) of an other who both demands satisfaction and oversees symbolization, there can be no relaxing into the regulatory mechanisms of narrative and form.

The politics of insects, as noted above, hints at the limits of discursive intelligibility, a point Beard continues when he comments on the very ‘insectness’ of the insect. This limit of intelligibility – which extends to include the spectator as much as the diegetic inhabitants – sits then at the horizon of Fast Company’s oddly composed and generically disruptive post-race shots. Therefore where these films differ from what might otherwise be referred to as a more normal/normative tradition is that these films reveal, through their overattendance to the various requirements they are subject to, that a series of structuring forces exist.
