A History of Violence ★★★★

David Cronenberg is simply too powerful

Like the final two shots of The Godfather, stretched out to 95 excruciating, inevitable minutes, the door slowly closing shut—for both Edie and Tom—, with 100% more throat stomps. Probably would only have liked this more if Viggo started growing an external sac to house his monstrous births or a blood sucking vagina in his armpit or something.
