Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's all vapid snark, didactic sermonizing and bewildering shock tactics. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Aug 16, 2012

Fresh: It's like a dream that engages and drifts, until waking with a start in a finale that's as bracing and raw as the rest of the film is coolly distant. – Scott Tobias, NPR, Aug 16, 2012

Fresh: Despite the constrictions, Cronenberg keeps the space handsome and active. For long stretches, Cosmopolis is dreamy and funny, in an off-centered way. – David Denby, New Yorker, Aug 17, 2012

Fresh: Conventional it is not. Engrossing it is. – John Anderson, Wall Street Journal, Aug 16, 2012

Weird movie.

i think the reason people don't like the movie is because they try to understand the dialogue and not looking at all of it as very unrealistic and inside a mind of someone who tries to control everything and it is killing everything around him from his relationships, to his marriage, to he protection, to himself.

Poor Rob

I was excited to c this. I can't even believe he accepted such a poor film. Highly disappointed.


So weird and boring. Turned off after 20 min and fast forwarded to see if anything good would happen. Nope. Horrible! Want my 99 cents back!
