Cosmopolis review

Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg's 
Cosmopolis.

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Jake Wilson Cosmopolis is vastly, audaciously silly, which could be said of most Cronenberg films: the difference lies in the pompous, worshipful attitude that mutes most of the presumably intentional humour.

Worthy concepts emerge from this capitalist cocoon, if you invest time

Robert Pattinson stars as Eric Packer

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Paul Byrnes COSMOPOLIS is the cinematic equivalent of a rectal examination.

Driven to despair

Robert Pattinson stars as Eric Packer in Entertainment One's Cosmopolis (2012)

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Ed Gibbs Twilight's RPatz ditches the fangs and keeps the brooding on a poetic ride to look for life's meaning.

    Pretty spot on review by Paul Byrnes, hopefully the Rpatz crowd will sit through it long enough to get a message from it, but I doubt it. It was clever but very tedious. Honestly, when Rpatz went into that portaloo towards the end, I prayed like heck that it was some kind of magician's box and he would disappear so I could go home early. (Note to self, don't let the kids wear fake vampire teeth while their faces are still maturing).

    Sorry, I wanted to select NO stars.My advice....don't waste your money. Clearly the worst movie I've seen. I would consider watching 90 minutes of test pattern with that annoying tone turned up loud, rather than see this movie.

    Pretty fair reivew. Rpatz is actually pretty good even as the film around him lumbers and ultimately, collapses under the weight of its pretentiousness and meaninglessness. Maybe that's what it is all about anyway? If so, then bravo. Otherwise, it's a major struggle (and I'm a big Cronenberg fan)

    I loved this film! Just go and sit back and let the dialogue wash over you! Too many people these days only want to see movies where they dont have to think - they want a beginning, a middle, an end and a cue to tell them when to laugh/cry. Open your mind and go see this movie!
