Nonstop, epistemological slapstick.
At times astonishingly beautiful. The closing credits sequence alone is lovelier than some entire movies.
Confined to a few locations and shaking with ecstasy, possibility and the torment of being alive, "Cosmos" is like absinthe distilled secretly in a prison cell.
It is possible to appreciate Mr. Zulawski's perverse ingenuity, and to miss his eye and voice, without quite succumbing to the strenuous charms and overcooked provocations of "Cosmos."
It's a surreal piece of mischief, equal parts breezy fun and maddening confusion.
From the hold-music smooth-jazz score to the overtly theatrical performances, everything about Cosmos is designed to confound.
Assuming Żuławski knew Cosmos would be his last film, this is a powerful, emotional farewell from a director who had so very much to say, and so many extraordinary ways to say it.
The movie asks the questions humans are condemned to ask forever: Does life have a purpose? Does it have a designer? Or is it all just an accident?
... in the end, "Cosmos" doesn't add up to much.
Another Żuławski extravaganza of overacting.
A movie that, like the book, ends but doesn't quite concludes. Some ambiguity and the possibility of giving different ends to reality and to fiction are imposed. And the bewilderment, of course. [Full review in Spanish]
It's tricky not to be ensnared by the beguiling yet intriguing nature of it all.
