Im tired of saying: "Yet another brilliant film from Cronenberg and performance from Mortensen" The pairing is flawless in my opinion. This one you can't talk about plot details too much in fear of giving anything away, let me just say though that at most times it seems like nothing is really happening but yet there is alway something going on. Hard to explain, almost like watching Seven's ending for the first time and getting the wind knocked out of you. To continue though the plot is very well written and laid out perfectly, the "dummy twist" as I call it was expected but only during the last frames of the movie and 10 seconds into the credits did I realize the "big twist". Very well done indeed.
Performances are great from everyone, I've heard critics complain about Armin Mueller-Stahl's portrayel as the boss to be not suiting...I thought he was very effective and scary actually, the silent scary type. As you'd expect what is a Cronenberg film without the trademark sex and violence right? Well it's all here and yes it is graphic here and there but mostly brief. The highlight being the much talked about steam room fight, which was excellent btw and huge thumbs up to Mortensen for being so daring as to do the entire fight in the nude, crazy o. The entire film is great but this is Mortensen's movie imo, he's portrayal as the "Russian Limo Driver" is excellent and he deserves the Oscar nomination. I'm looking forward to the next one.
