A History of Violence

Description
-(Tom Stahl) An ordinary man lives a happy and quiet life with his lawyer wife and their two children in a small town in Millbrook, Indiana. One day his ideal life collapses when he tries to steal his restaurant, saves his friends and restaurant patrons and kills the intruders. His life changes completely; he is described as a hero and the media agencies and journalists come down to cover his story, making him uneasy about highlighting it for such a reason.

Without conceding any of his iconoclastic vision, Cronenberg has turned a genre film with classic Western overtones into a gripping psychological drama that examines the duality of man and his infatuation with the art of violence.

While it weakens in its final stretch...A History of Violence succeeds enormously thanks to the strength of its direction and performances.

Cronenberg's direction, mirroring the split in Tom, is alternately measured and frighteningly explosive, and, as always, he gives the movie a nasty underlay of sexual perversity.

With A History Of Violence, Cronenberg uses the pulp gangster genre - as opposed to, say, sci-fi horror -- to draw us into a dialogue on our relationship as voyeurs to violence, both real and cinematic.

This peculiarly predictable picture has been calculated, or miscalculated, to set up certain expectations, fulfill them, and then do the same thing again, thereby giving us a chance to see what's coming and, at least in theory, be shocked.

The less you know about this movie before seeing it -- and you really should see it -- the better.
