no he s talking about David Cronenberghs movie , which got the Palme D or at Cannes sometimes in the mid nineties as far as i remember.
Edit: @curiouscharles beat me to it
While i dont see much how the collection is actually channeling that influence, and I would almost dismiss it as grotesque or a display of bad taste, well some might argue thats exactly the kind of critics the films received from its detractors.
I kinda liked the movie due to its very weird / dreamy vibe (and gross black sense of humor)...
