Cosmopolis is not for everyone; truthfully it’s hard to believe this was made for anyone. David Cronenberg takes Don DeLillo’s unfilmable novel and plants it on the screen as dot-com billionaire Robert Pattinson goes around town in his airtight limo as the financial world collapses outside.
Is it a pretentious piece of nonsense or is it a timely exploration of those individuals who hold the keys to the kingdom? With the right mindset and patience and if you can accept its strange rhythms then it’s a fairly fascinating film and proof that despite the screaming masses, Pattinson can actually act.
