After Tom shoots two criminals when they hold up his diner, he finds that his moment of 'heroism' draws his family into a petrifying world of violence. A top-drawer suspense thriller, the film also reveals layers of complexity coiled in its fabric. Starring Viggo Mortensen in a faultless performance, the star of the show is still director David Cronenberg, whose tightrope walk between spectacle and critique hits both guts and mind hard.
