David Cronenberg on 'A History of Violence'
He's been called the King of Venereal Horror. David Cronenberg directed the films M. Butterfly, The Fly, Dead Ringers and Naked Lunch, all of which tell a story of sexually deviant behavior.
In Crash, Cronenberg continued the theme, combining sex and car wrecks. But in his new film, A History of Violence, the director has crafted a psychological thriller about one man's potential for violence.
