A History of Violence - 2005

This is quite a good film but people should be warned that it has a dark feel and moves slowly. Steadily but slowly. I'd give it a 7/10
Good performances by Ed Harris and Viggo Mortenson GREAT short performance by William Hurt.

Cronenberg has developed a particular style of directing and many people either like it or don't.

I remember I saw Crash (1996) and it had a similar dark feel, slow pace and incredibly weird subject matter....but I LOVED it.
Actually I only loved the first half because my wife could not deal with the film and she made us walk out.

I'm intrigued by the History of Violence movie. I'll have to check it out!

Is Crash (1996) the one where they crash cars?

Uh yeah...but they are also hmmm, well, 'fooling around' nudge nudge wink wink WHILE crashing the cars.

Truly weird but very interesting - at least the first half before I got dragged out of the theater midfilm.

Yes, I have seen that one, they do "other stuff" before they crash the cars.

Oh I loved History of Violence!!! I liked some of Cronenburg's stuff, not all. Crash was abit weird but History of Violence was the most mainstream I ever seen Cronenburg do.

I actually got the pleasure of meeting Cronenburg, Mortensen and the rest of the cast during the film festival. It was fabulous.

The movie was great, I enjoyed it and I thought everyone put in some great performances.
