Nobody's perfect, Tom.Tom: I guess not.
A happy 15 to David Cronenberg's A History of Violence, released on this day in 2005. I really have to go back and re-watch this, I haven't seen it since 2005 and I have a feeling I'll appreciate it more now than I did at the time -- at the time I was kind of annoyed that Cronenberg seemed to be stepping away from the horror genre, but now, in 2020, I think I'll just be happy to see any Cronenberg at all. Dude hasn't directed anything in six years! Please David, make another movie! Although...

... we will supposedly be seeing Cronenberg on-screen playing Viggo's proctologist in Viggo's directorial debut called Falling, which also, on top of all that, has Viggo playing gay. (The film played at TIFF and I think got pretty bad reviews.) Anyway what are y'all's thoughts on A History of Violence? I know it was beloved by many at the time and my tepid opinion was an outlier, so please, take to the comments to tell me I was wrong.
