Film Reviews: Cosmopolis (2012)
Cosmopolis (2012). Directed by David Cronenberg and based on the novel by Don DeLillio. The film starts with young billionaire Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) travelling across New York City in a limousine to get his hair cut. In the limousine he meets with various business colleagues, his wife, and a prostitute, among others. If Cosmopolis has any message I have no idea what it was supposed to be, or perhaps more to the point the film became such a chore to watch that I just didn't care. The story lurches from one seemingly meaningless vignette to another, with semi-poetic but empty prose. If you're a fan of pretentious nonsense you might get a kick out of it, otherwise avoid avoid avoid. 1/5 (Awful)
