A top notch thriller
I saw the film at the Cannes Film Festival. All I have to say is: Wow. One of the best thrillers ever. It’s refreshing to watch a film in genre that’s so often full of clichés. Besides being a thriller, it also a smart film about the culture of violence. How it dominates our world. One of the questions the film asks whether one can live free of violence, even the slightest. In the film violence lurks in every corner and the characters are forced to defend themselves. Definitely my favorite Cronenberg film, also his most mainstream I might add. It’s a modern Western and reminds one of those great Western films. As the title indicates it’s a very violent film but guess it will be toned down as usual, specially the sex scene. All the stars are in peek form and perfectly cast. William Hurt makes a comeback to better roles. He was also great in “The King”. It will and should get some awards at the end of the year from critics and etc.
Well, what did you expect?
I read through a lot of these comments, and it seems quite a few people who have given this film a bad rating based their judgment on either the sex scenes, or the gore (or both). Well, it’s called “A History of Violence”, and it’s directed by David Cronenberg! What did they expect? The film is, simply put, amazing. Anyone who enjoys Cronenberg’s other films will greatly appreciate this one. It speaks on many levels, and I suggest seeing it more than once to fully take it all in. Beautiful performances all around. I felt as though that is how people put in a situation like that would really act. I had a smile on my face the entire film because I have been waiting all summer (or longer) for a film of this caliber, and it was worth it.
