Ahh, the life of a sleazy cable TV president. We saw in Part 1 the goings-on of Max Renn: secret product meetings in dirty hotel rooms and clandestine operations seeking out coded video signals harbouring brutal images of torture and, well, God knows what else. Did you notice the first image is of a TV? Telling, perhaps...
Also, one can't shake the feeling even though Max is seemingly in the power position as the "hunter" during these early scenes of Videodrome that he is actually being solicited. A puppet on a string who is not aware of the fact? More questions than answers after the first ten Part 2.
