Here’s a great review of Cosmopolis by ‘celluloid junkie‘
Cosmopolis is the 2012 sci-fi drama directed by David Cronenberg starring Robert Pattinson as Eric Packer, Paul Giamatti as Benno, Juliette Binoche as Didi, Samantha Morton as Vija, and Sarah Gadon as Eric’s wife, Elise.
Love him or hate him, and I’m sure there’s a fair amount that could go either way, Robert Pattinson is here to stay.
Pattinson’s performance in Cosmopolis is near-perfect. That is to say – this film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo is strangely literal. Not all written dialogue sounds as good when spoken aloud as it does in your head. With Cosmopolis, if you ever do adjust to the cadence and language of its cast of characters, you may have already given up on the plot. People seem to have confused this oddness with Pattinson’s (et al) ability to act.
This is a mistake.

Interview with Robert Pattinson “Cosmopolis”
I was impressed with the script that David wrote. “The reason why I wanted to take this part is that I really would like to work with David Cronenberg. I knew he would be very creative, and that it would be a real experience. And I was appealed by the writing of the script, like a kind of long poem. And a mysterious poem too. (omit) But this time it was completely different, the further I read, the less I could figure out where it was leading and the more I wanted to be a part of it.”
“I couldn’t imagine myself in the role at all. The first time I spoke to David, it is exactly what I told him, that I didn’t visualize anything, and he thought it was a good thing. (omit) Even during the first week of shooting, we were all still wondering what the film would look like once finished. It was fascinating, I felt like the film was fashioning itself.”
“David doesn’t like rehearsals. We didn’t talk much about the film before the shooting. And I only met the other actors on set, during production, I discovered them as they appeared, literally, on Eric Packer’s limousine, And it was quite pleasant.”
It is uneasy to play a character that dose not follow a predictable path without clear vision. But the truth is that this character is changing. It dose not matter if it ends badly nor the change is different from an ordinary character we usually see. David, however, has complete control. It was the first time for me to work with a director who took complete control over his own movie. He completely grasps any situations and has clear ideas what he wants in any stages. Eventually, under the circumstances, I could have some confidence and relax.
RS: Fast forward 20 years and now you are making huge movies. After Spider there were a few and then A Dangerous Method and Cosmopolis with Robert Pattinson.
MK: I think it was great for us and the movie that Rob was interested in making that type of move at this time. I think he is great in the movie and he will bring a new type of audience to David’s world.
RS:What’s next for the ever evolving Martin Katz?
MK: I have two things that I am excited about. I am working on my fourth collaboration with David Cronenberg called Maps To The Stars. It is an absurdist comedy about the entertainment business. We hope to be able to work with many of the people we have worked with before including Rob Pattinson.
