EASTERN PROMISES : LEAVES YOU WANTING MORE!
If you’re planning to go to the movies this weekend – you’re in luck because there’ s a fabulous new movie well worth your time and money. It’s Eastern Promises, and we can’t say enough good things about it. We loved David Cronenberg’s “A History of Violence” for it’s original concept – we’d never seen a movie like that before – how refreshing! And he’s done it again! Eastern Promises offers a peek into the Russian mafia (similar to the Italian mafia – but without any evident code of honor) and it’s utterly fascinating. Viggo Mortensen plays one of the hot mafia guys and he has a shocking nude scene where he’s in a steam room and attacked by two clothed killers. They roll around on the tiles for five bloody and agonizing minutes. Wow! This enlightening and gripping movie ends too soon and leaves you hoping for part II. Don’t miss it!
