Cosmopolis

Directed by: David Cronenberg

Cast: Robert Pattinson, Jay Baruchel, Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton Paul Giamatti

Running Time: 1 hr 48 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: August 24, 2012 (Chicago)

Plot: A young billionaire (Pattinson) journeys across a chaotic Manhattan in a stretch limo to get a haircut.

Who’S It For?: Come for the Cronenberg, stay for the Pattinson; it won’t work for most the other way around.

Overall

As some might notice (it’s easy to get lost in the brooding anti-groove of this film), the dialogue of Cosmopolis is often delivered with patchy rhythm. Leaving the audience to keep up with the mega concepts in a delivery akin to following flow-less Shakespeare, the ideas of Cosmopolis are individually incoherent, and at the same time hard to glue together. Instead, it is loud pieces that aim higher brow than American Psycho’s satire, both related to its characters and their societies, »
