In Eastern Promises, David Cronenberg's highly anticipated new thriller which opens nationally this weekend, the director and star Viggo Mortensen once again explore the psyche, physicality and fortunes of a man whose true nature may never be revealed. "A rhapsodic movie directed with considerable formal intelligence and brooding power from an original screenplay by Steve Knight (Dirty Pretty Things), Eastern Promises is very much a companion to A History of Violence," writes J. Hoberman in the Village Voice. Adds Owen Glieberman (EW): "It's an academic meditation in underworld-thriller drag -- a movie that looks about as close to a straight-ahead, down-and-dirty genre entertainment as anything the director has made since his exploding-head horror days."
