Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's all vapid snark, didactic sermonizing and bewildering shock tactics.
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.
Fresh: Despite the constrictions, Cronenberg keeps the space handsome and active. For long stretches, Cosmopolis is dreamy and funny, in an off-centered way.
Fresh: Conventional it is not. Engrossing it is.
Boring and pretentious I expected more from David Cronenberg.
Cronenberg brings DeLillo to life
Based on DeLillo book, Cosmopolis keeps his poetic dialogue in telling the cataclysmic day of a financial whiz who's in search of meaning to his life while finding he's losing his fortune. Takes place in Packer's limo with consequential meetings & run in's which lead to his fate. Hard film not everyone will enjoy & it's Cronenberg who revels in this creative filmmaking that explores darker aspects of life, but I really enjoyed it. Robert Pattinson finally got most to get over their sparkly vampire bias & it is his stand out performance thus far. Great scene with Paul Giamatti at the end when he comes to face his nemesis.
he was good..............but the movie was beyond bad
