I saw "Eastern Promises" last weekend, and I thought it was a very fine film.  Viggo Mortensen is exceptional and it was nice to see Armin Mueller-Stahl in a devious not unlike his role in "Shine" many years ago.  Cronenberg's made a film better than his critically acclaimed "The History of Violence," and it doesn't surprise me at all that "Eastern Promises" took the top prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.
