New Cosmopolis Review: “Pattinson Aces The Role”   Leave a comment

“Even if someone other than Twilight’s Robert Pattinson had played him, even without the unsettling, undead attitude that the young Briton did bring to the role, the protagonist in Cosmopolis would be called a blood-sucking capitalist.

That is exactly what makes this quintessentially American character so interesting, both in Don DeLillo’s dystopian novel and now in David Cronenberg’s film adaptation. The fictional Eric Packer represents the dynamic and mysterious tribe of real-life Wall Street entrepreneurs who have corrupted the system and robbed the rest of us blind through greed. This is a post-modern morality tale that now intersects with the economic crisis of 2008-09, even though DeLillo published his book five years earlier.

Greed is still good … or is it? Of course not. Eric Packer is an anti-hero, an outlaw, a parasite in the trappings of a peacock. Adopting a convincing American accent, Pattinson aces the role despite his panic attacks before the film starting shooting in Toronto. Super-rich, slickly dressed in gray, hiding behind sunglasses, happiest inside his white stretch limo in the streets of Manhattan, Packer is living the louche life of luxury and debauchery.”

Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg talk about ‘Maps To The Stars’ with EW   1 comment

For those of you who don’t get how David Cronenberg would want to work with Robert Pattinson, just look at Breaking Dawn. If Bella’s pregnancy doesn’t count as a prime example of Cronenbergian body horror, then I don’t know what does. And now, it appears that Pattinson and Cronenberg are hoping to pair up once more following their upcoming Cosmopolis. Pattinson confirmed to EW that he’s attached to the director’s long-gestating Maps to the Stars — although he’s not sure when they would begin production. “I don’t know if I’m doing it next,” he says. Cronenberg has stated that he hopes to cast frequent collaborator Viggo Mortensen as well.

The film would be based on a script by novelist and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, who has also written an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel, As She Climbed Across the Table, for Cronenberg. “It’s about child stars,” says Pattinson of Wagner’s script. “It’s very funny. It’s very, very dark.”

Cosmopolis, which is based on a 2003 Don DeLillo novel, debuted two weeks ago at the Cannes Film Festival.

Cosmopolis Review by “A blockbuster of the mind”   2 comments



(out of 4)

Starring Robert Pattinson, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon and Juliette Binoche. Written and directed by David Cronenberg. 108 minutes. Opens June 8 at the Varsity and Sheppard Grande. 14A

David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolisis a blockbuster of the mind, fascinating as much for what the Toronto director shows as for what he chooses not to.

Sex, violence, despair and talk, talk, talk fill this dystopian road movie.Twilight’s Robert Pattinson stars as a dissolute billionaire in a stretch limousine, cruising a Toronto made to resemble New York (more or less).

There are extreme visuals that cross cinematographer Peter Suschitzky’s unblinking lens, including flung dead rats and a Taser-packing naked woman. But there aren’t as many as you might expect.

Significantly missing is a nude orgy scene, an epiphanic part of Don DeLillo’s 2003 source novel, involving 300 people in a Manhattan intersection. Cronenberg skipped it, thinking it would look fake on film.
