A History of Violence  Thriller Tom Stall led seemingly peaceful life until he turned out to be a local hero after killing some thieves who were trying to rob his diner. This movie received many awards, even nominated for an Oscar, and critics loved it, so I must agree with all of that and say that this is a awesome movie. Can a guy get a clean slate if he wants to start over his life and be good, or will the past haunt him forever? Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris with the support of William Hurt made this movie even better with their perfect performances(oops I almost forgot about Maria, she`s also good). It’s a little funny to see David Cronenberg direct a regular flick, but this only proves how great he is. Enjoy. Director: David Cronenberg Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, Ed Harris, William Hurt Fun Stuff: During an interview, Viggo Mortensen stated that during the shooting of the first bar scene with Ed Harris he could not stop laughing, and as a result, the scene had to be re-shot several times. Due to Viggo Mortensen’s behavior, Ed Harris completed the scene without pants; he only wore his underwear, yet this cannot be seen as the bar table impedes our view. Thus, Viggo Mortensen had to act seriously while Ed Harris was not wearing any pants, and this is the scene that is used in the movie.
