Canadian director David Cronenberg, whose impressive oeuvre includes such disparate works as The Dead Zone, The Fly, Dead Ringers, M. Butterfly, and Spider, has made what might be the best film of his career with A History Of Violence. Loosely based on the graphic novel by John Wagner and Vince Locke, the movie stars Viggo Mortensen as Tom Stall, a quiet, easygoing family man who runs a diner in a small Indiana town. But when two dangerous criminals come into the restaurant prepared to wreak havoc, Stall turns hero and shoots them both. After Stall's story is blasted all over the media, Philly mobster Carl Fogaty (an excellent Ed Harris) shows up, claiming that Tom is actually former hit man Joey Cusack and they've got some important business to finish. While Stall insists that Fogaty is mistaken, his family, his wife, Edie (Maria Bello); teenage son, Jack (Ashton Holmes); and young daughter, Sarah (Heidi Hayes), gets dragged into the danger that constantly threatens to explode. Cronenberg, whose films often deal with the fantastical, the futuristic, and the supernatural, has done a masterly job creating a wholly believable modern world where evil lurks just around the corner. Howard Shore's tense, moody music complements the outstanding acting in a violent, powerful film that is not to be missed

Watched this again last night strangely enough, fantastic film and a total bargain at this price! My copy doesn't have half these features (no commentary etc.) either!
Just ordered - thanks :thumbsup:
