A History of Violence

Director: David Cronenberg
Year: 2005
Viggo Mortensen is great as a small-town diner owner whose instinctive and violent dispatch of two nasty robbers suggests that he may actually be a gangster in hiding. Dude has made a career out of playing total hard-asses, but he seems like the kind of guy who would be full of interesting gardening tips and things to say about soil. We bet he has a rocking chair with an old quilt, and maybe a hummingbird feeder.
