Eastern Promises







Photos from Eastern Promises – David Cronenberg, 2007. A nice, tight film I find few people have seen. Viggo Mortensen (whose preparation for the role has become the stuff of cinephile legend) and Vincent Cassel (a recurring figure of late) turn in strong performances as Russian gang members and close friends. Cronenberg delivers a taut, compelling drama in which very little actually happens. An interesting portrait of loyalty, paranoia, and betrayal.
