BUT THEN..I did what I often do with most films I watch..I watched it again, and I have to say that never before have I done a bigger U Turn on a film than I did with Violence.
The film not only looks at mob violence, but it also looks at violence as an instrument of self defense; it looks at the possible connection between violence and genetics as Tom's son is observed dealing with a school bully in a rather unsettling way, and it even examines violence between a husband ....
This was the first Cronenberg film I had seen at the time and I actually did like it when I first watched it , but my recent second viewing has me laughing at my film taste when I was younger.
