BEST FILM DIREC­TOR

NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Art -

DAVID CRO­NEN­BERG At the re­cent film fest, David Cro­nen­berg, Atom Egoyan and Deepa Mehta had films in the run­ning. Each was wor­thy, but the best – most orig­i­nal, most dar­ing – turned out to be Cro­nen­berg’s A His­tory Of Vi­o­lence. Here are all his usual themes – ob­ses­sion, blood, para­noia – in a stylish pack­age, with per­for­mances that rise above the or­di­nary. The re­cent twodisc DVD of The Fly looks bet­ter than ever.
