A black comedy as dry and deadpan as a bleached skull. To this end, the movie opens with a sort of death's-head grin: an in-your-face closeup of the grille of a stretch limousine...

For all the doomsday build-up we get in the first 90 minutes, Packer's primary antagonist turns out to be such a mundane construct you can't help but feel crestfallen.

... a movie about a sentient zombie, trapped in a womblike limousine while outside the dead souls of Manhattan roil, spraying paint on his windows and hurling rats. Everything he wants is posthumous.

It's fascinating but anti-cinematic and a frustrating film to get your arms around.

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

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.

If Cosmopolis remains chilly and remote, it does so in a way that often feels unsettlingly familiar.
August 30, 2012
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.
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.

With a cast like this we expected major Cronenberg. Didn't happen.

Cosmopolis is an investment that pays off enormous dividends.

Cosmopolis is something like the anti-matter version of Atlas Shrugged.
August 24, 2012
I can't convince myself that Cosmopolis is anything other than unscripted documentary about the life of Robert Pattinson, shot by security cameras.
August 24, 2012
I must admit Robert Pattinson does dead extremely well.

GQ-ready, super-rich Internet entrepreneur/financier Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) sails around New York inside a sleek, white, ovoid sarcophagus-limo from which he emerges like a modern-day, couture-clad Count Dracula

"Cosmopolis" is a deeply subversive, deeply intelligent movie for grown-ups. Brilliant.
August 24, 2012
Robert Pattinson... brings a slick, knowing roboticness to a man desperate to maintain a pretense of control and command of the world around him.

This film is a tough sell. But it's never less than daring, poised or deliberate. It doesn't go down easy, but it clings.
