BEST FILM DIRECTOR
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.
