A History of Violence Movie Review by BillyBob (8/9/2009)

Meet Tom and Edie Stall - After (at least) 16 years of marriage, and their sex-life is still just so fresh and exciting. Yeah. Having violent, rape-like sex on the hard, wooden stairs inside of their 'Dream Home' is, of course, the best sex of all.

A History of Violence Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

David Cronenberg is one the most devisive directors on the planet. Either you destest his work or you love it. Coming up from interesting horror ('Scanners', 'The Fly') to more recent triumphs (1996's 'Crash', 2002's 'Spider'), this is by far his best film yet.
