World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
You walk out of Eastern Promises feeling spooked and sullied, as if waking from a noisome dream. "London is to blame," one of the characters declares, but I don't buy it. I blame David Cronenberg.
The sort of pompous, self-serving critique that does a disservice to both filmmaker and prospective viewer alike. Lane is the epitome of a wanker.

I blame Anthony Lane for this review not the New Yorker

I've seen the movie too, and find this review quite accurate

Weak screenplay, for me and my russian friends, cliche plot details looked like from a comic cartoon. The only likable was performance by Mortensen.

I agree with Lane. This is a squalid, ugly, pointless movie. Moves like a dirge.

I'm going to have to agree with the original critic here. The film really has no reason for existence other than pure shock value. The story is a joke

Review is totally off. Of course the review is just an opinion as is my review of the review lol.

Cronenberg accomplished everything he set out to do with his film, touched every nerve, and Lane's review is the only evidence I need.
