I just saw an amazing movie: David Cronenberg's History of Violence. Run, don't walk to see it. Apparently it's been getitng great reviews which it deserves fully.

Plot: Tom (Viggo Mortensen) is a soft-spoken proprietor of a diner in Indiana, happy with his wife and two kids. One day he shoots two vicious killers to defend himself and the people in his diner. He is a media hero, but some mobsters show up from Philadelphia and claim that he isn't Tom, but Joey, a notorious and vicious mobster...To say more would be to spoil it.

It's an amazing, amazing, amazing movie. The kind that starts simply, and quietly, and very low-key, but by the end grabs you and won't let you go. I keep thinking about it.

Moreover, Viggo gives an amazing performance. Tom isn't a person who talks much at all, but by the end, you really feel under his skin. Not to mention that marvelous, ambiguous final scene. I never knew anyone's face could be so naked.

So, go see it!

In other news, the trailer for "New World" is beyond amazing. Except for Serenity, it's my most anticipated of the year now. It's liquidly beautiful and I could stare at it forever. Moreover, the actrss who plays Pocahontas has this really simple beauty and Christian Bale is just...yum. And that voice! Also, Colin Farrell doesn't usually do much for me, but here, with the tattoos and the bare-chest and the severe angst (and it looks like great chemistry with Pocahontas)...wow!!!! Hot!!!!!!
