A History of Violence

Has anyone seen the new flick from the horror maestro David Cronenberg: "A History of Violence"?

I just saw it in the cinema. I don't want to comment on the film as I usually establish my opinion about Cronenberg's works some time after the performance.

...Ok, frankly speaking, I expected something more complex...

...Ok, maybe, it's because I respect Cronenberg so much, that I find it difficult to admit that I was a little bit disappointed..

Has anyone seen it? If yes, let me know what you think.

Re: A History of Violence

I liked it and wasn't disappointed.
But, I thought it was pretty convetional.
I usually expect something more twisted from David Cronenberg.
