Hollywood Buzz #2

O que se diz lá fora acerca de EASTERN PROMISES:

«A film that takes us beyond crime and London and the Russian mafia and into the mystifying realms of human nature.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

«Perhaps the director set the bar so high with A History of Violence that there was no way he could equal it with Eastern Promises, but for him to fall so short is nothing less than criminal.»
James Berardinelli, Reelviews

«Expertly realized and gunmetal slick, Eastern Promises whirs along with perfect efficiency, but doesn't stir much in the way of visceral horror despite its penchant for treating the human body like a chicken carcass on a block.»
Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times

«Containing one of the most cinematically virtuosic set pieces of Cronenberg's career — a bone-crunching battle in a bathhouse that Mortensen (whose performance is entirely remarkable) plays in the nude — Eastern Promises is nonetheless one of Cronenberg's subtlest, most insinuating pictures, and one of the highlights of the year so far.»
Glenn Kenny, Premiere

«Eastern Promises [...] is fundamentally about the moral scandal of slavery, the traffic in human bodies and human misery that persists, in secret and in the shadows, even in the modern, cosmopolitan West.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times
