Cosmopolis Reviews

September 6, 2012
The rapid dialogue is dry and mannered, like a David Mamet play, there's virtually no story and Cronenberg's visual scheme is cold and claustrophobic.

"Cosmopolis" is proof that a film can be provocative yet completely un-enjoyable.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

It's fascinating but anti-cinematic and a frustrating film to get your arms around.
September 4, 2012
Throws heady ideas at you faster than Michael Bay can explode a building, but the rate at which ideas stick is inconsistent. It does, however, develop a rhythm. The metered language forces you to adjust just as emotion develops.

A master filmmaker's rumination on capitalism as a vision of diseased titanium
September 2, 2012
David Cronenberg takes a wayward shot at making a film out of Don DeLillo's artful novel Cosmopolis. Cronenberg's version drones and flounders.

Cynical and futile - a total waste of time and money.

If there has ever been a point in human history when the phrase "asymmetrical prostate" got a bigger laugh than it does [here], I've never heard of it.

Well, if it isn't the most confounding movie of the year.
August 30, 2012
If Cosmopolis remains chilly and remote, it does so in a way that often feels unsettlingly familiar.

I don't know if DeLillo's fetishized doubletalk ever works in a visual medium like film, but I can tell you that Robert Pattinson sure as hell isn't up to it, at least not without better direction than this.

Though hardly a crowd-pleaser. it's the sort of challenging, thought-provoking, stylistically striking piece of auteurism one rarely encounters nowadays.

Cosmopolis deconstructs language, symbols and theories to present a sprawling and dense post-GFC Heart of Darkness.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 28, 2012
Cold and calculated, Cosmospolis is a mesmerizing journey that takes us deep into the heart of darkness -- familiar territory for such an extraordinary auteur.
August 27, 2012
With a cast like this we expected major Cronenberg. Didn't happen.
August 25, 2012
Not worth seeing

Cosmopolis is an investment that pays off enormous dividends.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Cosmopolis is something like the anti-matter version of Atlas Shrugged.
August 24, 2012
If you pay even a single penny to watch the thing, you'll be making the most ill-advised purchase of your natural born life.
Full Review | Original Score: F

I can't convince myself that Cosmopolis is anything other than unscripted documentary about the life of Robert Pattinson, shot by security cameras.
