In Cronenberg on Cronenberg, edited by Chris Rodley (ISBN 0571191371), Cronenberg has summarised Transfer as follows:

"Transfer, my first film, was a surreal sketch for two people - a psychiatrist and his patient - at a table set for dinner in the middle of a field covered in snow. The psychiatrist has been followed by his obsessive former patient. The only relationship the patient has had which has meant anything to him has been with the psychiatrist. The patient complains that he has invented things to amuse and occasionally worry the psychiatrist but that he has remained unappreciative of his efforts."

Movie film transfer FAQs (1045 words)
Moving film is made up from an infinitely varying collection of dots, giving virtually infinite resolution; though the size of the dots, and the quality of the lenses, are limiting factors.
Film can handle some changes to colour temperature, showing them as they are, and let your eyes adjust as they do normally, before compensation has to be used (colour correction filters on the camera, and/or colour grading while processing).
Film transfers require constant monitoring, frequent manual adjustments to exposure (automatic iris control doesn't work well when filming flickering light sources, and very contrasty films require a choice about whether to concentrate on the darker or brighter aspects of the shot), and usually involve a lot of spool changing, or repairs to very old splices.
