Eastern Promises Reviews
Stunning, though, is Cronenberg's ability to make you perceive the creepiness of Mafia's amoral familism
David clearly had something on his mind that he wants to talk about for each of his films, but they end up getting bogged down by poor plot structuring almost every time.
The parts of Eastern Promises that are great, are really great. The realistic portrayal of lifetime criminals, the shocking violence, every single time Viggo Mortinsenis on screen, are all fantastic, but are bogged down down by a lack of momentum and a climax that comes too early in the film.
Great movie if you are able to look past those structural issues.
La manera en la que Viggo Mortensen le pone el cuerpo (literalmente) a Nikolai me dejó muda.
