Visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg (Scanners, The Fly) and muse Viggo Mortensen (The Indian Runner, Green Book) follow up A History of Violence with every other acclaimed joint effort, the mesmerizing Eastern Promises. Mortensen delivers an Oscar-nominated performance as Nikolai, a ruthless and mysterious Russian who has ties to one of the crucial dangerous crime families in London. His moderately maintained existence is jarred when he crosses paths with Anna (Naomi Watts, Mulholland Drive, King Kong), a midwife who has come across potentially damaging evidence against the circle of relatives. Their odd relationship sets off an unstoppable chain of deceit, death and retribution. Brilliantly written by Steven Knight (The Girl within the Spider’s Internet) with terrific supporting turns by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) and Armin Mueller-Stahl (Music Box), this brooding and provocative masterpiece is “no peculiar crime thriller, just as Cronenberg isn’t any peculiar director” (Roger Ebert). Most sensible-notch cinematography by Peter Suschitzky (Figures in a Landscape, Dead Ringers).
