Cronenberg again proves that his most recent efforts far outshine his earlier work. Viggo Mortenson delivers a brilliant performance, as usual. Beautifully written, directed and acted, Eastern Promises is another example of how amazing 2007 really was for movies. The picture quality is stunning, there is great depth and excellent detail. Colors are also very deep and vibrant. AQ was great as well.

The realism of many scenes was incredible. In particular, the fight scene is extremely violent and completely lacking in grace; everything involves sweating and panting, misplaced blows and desperate struggling. Not some over-developed dance we see in most cinema fight scenes.
