"Some of the performers -- especially Maria Bello as the hero's wife and Ed Harris as a mysterious stranger -- are gripping." Movieline's Hollywood Life "The family tableau that ends the film is as chilling and redemptive as anything Cronenberg has ever crafted....You won't know what hit you." Rolling Stone "Cronenberg plays that pulp-revenge thriller plot with a perfectly pitched straight face throughout..." Uncut "It's about the violence that surpasseth all understanding -- a cataclysm of awful consequence that unfolds with insidious intimacy and a Cronenbergian delight in the animal squish and shock of torn bodies." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "A masterpiece of indirection and pure visceral thrills, David Cronenberg's latest mindblower, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, is the feel-good, feel-bad movie of the year." New York Times "Cronenberg's masterful, intelligent and gripping meta-thriller leaves us pondering about our enduringly perverse desire for alternative realities, in which surrogate violent alter egos run righteously and preposterously amok."
