3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Brilliant film. Brilliant director....Cronenberg brings us face to face with the horror of self."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "EASTERN PROMISES has a compelling story and strong performances....Provocative and engrossing, with an intriguing twist near the conclusion."USA Today "Mr. Cronenberg insists on getting under your skin. The result is a movie whose images and implications are likely to stay in your head for a long time."New York Times "[I]ntriguing....EASTERN PROMISES unpeels like an onion of corruption, with double crosses and deceptions, and ordinary do-gooders in way over their heads. Cronenberg's craftsmanship is seductive." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]ynotic and queasy, it delivers the director's trademark traumas in abundance."Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] distinctive new spin on the London crime yarn: a bleak, unsettling thriller that's nightmare made flesh."Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Cronenberg] revels in the detail, fascinated by conflicted nostalgia for the old country and the tattoos that ensure a Russian gangster's past is permanently etched into his body..."Empire "The continuity between EASTERN PROMISES and Cronenberg's early works is maintained through two themes: violence and the body. The violence in EASTERN PROMISES is at times breathtakingly brutal..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "The excellent Mortensen is utterly mesmeric....A darkly unforgettable crime thriller..."Ultimate DVD "Expertly realized and gummetal slick, EASTERN PROMISES whirs along with perfect efficiency..."Los Angeles Times Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's "10 Best Movies Of 2007" -- "[A] brutally mesmeric tale of the Russian mob in London."Rolling Stone "David Cronenberg's harsh but powerful film conjures up a violent world of bottomless evil, yet holds out, through Anna and Ms. Watts's lovely performance, the possibility of doing good."Wall Street Journal47.38368

"...[Cronenberg] is expertly able to create some shocking scenes....Visually intriguing..." Variety "...THE FLY plunges deeper into the forbidding realm of genetic dysfunction with genuinely unsettling results....It unfolds with such eerie grandeur that it will leave you stoked with a creepy high for hours after you've left the theater..." Los Angeles Times "[T]ouching and humorous." Total Film "THE FLY explores hidden fears of sex and reproduction, but it also allows a tenderness to blossom between Mr. Goldblum and Ms. Davis that is touching and exceptional in his work." New York Times "[T]his is a perfectly structured film....Typical of Cronenberg is the combination of graphic sickness and good humour that accompanies Brundle's metamorphosis..."Empire 5 stars out of 5 -- "Davis delivers one of her finest performances....It's easy to see how this masterpiece established Cronenberg as a bastion of the body-horror genre."Ultimate DVD47.28603
