Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
David Cronenberg is one of the only old guard filmmakers shooting today that is working at the same level or higher than he was at the beginning of his career. I loved EASTERN PROMISES and today’s featured flick A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. Then again I love awkward nudity involving Viggo Mortensen… but I think they’re genuinely sharp from a filmmaking standpoint. Cronenberg’s still on his game at an age where most of his contemporaries seem to have given up or forgotten what makes movie work.
A History of Violence blew me away when I saw it. The way Cronenberg handled the violence was brutal. He made every gunshot as scary as Michael Myers.
So, how about a little look at Cronenberg and Viggo from the making of this flick? Enjoy! Click to embiggen!
I was lucky enough to sit down with Ms. Angie Dickinson today for a nice interview, so tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic will be in honor of her!
