The new thriller from director David Cronenberg reteams him with his "A History of Violence" leading man Viggo Mortensen.

Eastern Promises Movie Review by Chris (9/17/2008)

The main ingredients to a well made and successful David Cronenberg are violence and sex, two things which are featured graphically in each of his films. In his previous film, 'A History of Violence', David casted 'Lord of the Rings' star Viggo Mortenson to play as a mysterious man with a killer alter ego. In 'Eastern...

But that's as far as I'll go in comparisons since the C man has been known to turn...

Eastern Promises Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (2/16/2008)

It seems Cronenberg is getting further and further away from what the world expects of him. No longer is he relying on gore and strange biological creations. The new Cronenberg (from 'Spider' onwards) has become interested in human nature. He seems fascinated with motive and dual personalities in these new films, always...
