As a startling wake-up call to our desensitization of violent imagery, masked in the guise of a superficial, standard-fare gangster tome, A History of Violence has already earned an assured place in the annals of cinema.

It's that personal courage to question the way things are, that elevates this film way above even its impressive enough status as an exceedingly effective thriller.

Clearly, David Cronenberg takes DVD content seriously, and viewers are the beneficiaries of this.

It delivers the entertainment of a well-made thriller, but reaches for and achieves more, primarily through the editing, using the film as a reflection upon the violent undercurrent of American society, and human nature, without spoiling the rhythm.
