Exclusive: David Cronenberg
Viggo Mortensen and director David Cronenberg struck cinematic paydirt with their first collaboration, A History of Violence. They've surpassed that film with the shocking and provocative Eastern Promises, an incredibly dark crime drama about sex slavery. A fourteen year old prostitute dies in childbirth, but leaves behind a diary of her tormented life. Mortensen stars as Nikolai, a driver/henchman in London's ruthless Russian mafia, who's instructed by his captain (Vincent Cassel) to retrieve the diary at all costs. There's a major plot twist in the film, so be sure to go in cold. I'd be surprised if all the principles didn't receive Oscar nominations. Cronenberg has made his best film here.
