Eric Packer wants a haircut. Such is the simple premise for David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, an increasingly complex film. Robert Pattinson plays the billionaire Packer whose trip in his sleek, white limousine—which is equipped with high-tech computer systems and a toilet—turns into a daylong odyssey. The Manhattan streets are gridlocked thanks to a visit by the president of the United States and a large funeral procession for a rap artist whom Packer happens to be a huge fan of—leading to an awkward hug with the rapper’s manager. Along the way he holds meetings—in his limousine—with the chief advisors in his company, dealing with some yen-related currency drama and an anti-capitalist riot that is reminiscent of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
