Eastern Promises is a further proof David Cronenberg is one of the last
classic film-makers left. At the same time, he is a modernist. The
combination, in the dark London he created, is a moral tale which makes
you think of Dostoievsky. It's a story of crime and redemption with an
unusual (hidden) tenderness. At the same time, it is a very serious
trip into the rites of a secret society as we can see more and more in
our big cities. A criminal secret society.
Cronenberg (and his friend Peter Suschistky) have created another
universe that seems another version of ours. As usual it is a mental
one, but so close to what we call "reality" that it makes you
uncomfortable and eventually horrified. The cast is fantastic and the
script is brilliant.
