Perhaps it's a mutant that can't quite fly, but it's stank movements will certainly cause pause for reflection, one that will repel as equally as it may attract.

Cosmopolis is as an exercise in outlandish dialogue and bone-dry humor, a contemporary allegory that is also a sustained riff on the idea of a virtual world.

A stylish think-piece for our times.

Pattinson, best known as the heartthrob star of the Twilight movies, will surprise many here with his intelligent ease in playing a very different sort of vampire.

Cronenberg's cold, exacting precision and emotionally removed observation may not grab all viewers, but under those perfect surfaces is a raw horror trying to claw out of the denial.

Over and above its topical urgency or the bit about the misfortune of globalism, it does what this director has always done in his films: split open the head of a character, plunge inside and try to visualise the bad and the ugly things to be found there.
