In Sunday's New York Daily News
, film critic Graham Fuller appears to be a little worried about the release of David Cronenberg's A History of Violence
. While the film is said to be fairly straightforward by Cronenberg standards (we have it on good authority that there will be no talking bugs
, no car-crash-sex
, no twin gynecologists
), Fuller fears that these reports might turn out to be a bit misleading. So, in an effort to sort of prepare us for the film, he offers a list of five things about it that are vaguely worrying/deeply odd/totally confusing. I don't know about you people, but reading that female lead Maria Bello
spends the film "channel[ing] Kirsten Dunst
in Bring It On"
has made me want to see A History of Violence
for the first time. I only hope there's jazz hands.
