    Intellectually stimulating and flawlessly directed by David Cronenberg with heady ideas and themes difficult to soak up upon it's first viewing. I can clearly see why many had difficulties enjoying this film with it's cold, bizarre dialogue heavy approach in each interaction, but upon mulitple viewings now have placed it upon one of my favorite films of the year so far and ranks upon some of my personal favorites in the Cronenberg library. It's fascinating view upon capitalism and modern society though a series of strangely comedic interactions is captivating. Robert Pattinson's performance is something else too. I never thought I'd mutter these words, but he truly acquits himself marvelously here. Something in Cronenberg has sparked the confidence he's seemingly lacked in previous films, always appearing stiffly callow, but here he gets tto loosen up a bit and allows some talent to seap through. Cosmopolis isn't a film for everyone. In fact, it isn't a film for most, but it definitely worked for me. 5 years 9 months ago

    Seems to be a very polarizing flick. Count me on the side of those that thought it was brilliant. Great author, great director, great movie. 5 years 7 months ago

    It feels like a Jim Jarmusch joint. This is a film that needs a particular mood to watch. It's odd, wordy and stylized. The dialogue is forced and cumbersome but that's what makes it work. If you're in a place where questions like "Where do limousines go at night?" sounds interesting, give it a shot. Otherwise put it aside and wait until you feel a bit introspective and could watch a meandering film with lots of emotionally distant people and Paul Giamatti explaining how his homemade toilet works. 3 years 3 months ago
