Cosmopolis Reviews by Rolling Stone & New York Times   2 comments

From Rolling Stone

If you can get past the psychological density of the source material (Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel) and the tabloid noise around the star, this mesmerizing mind-bender ought to prove two things: (1) Robert Pattinson really can act; (2) Director David Cronenberg never runs from a challenge. Pattinson stars as Eric Packer, a master of the universe at 28 but still helpless to stop his financial world from collapsing as he rides around Manhattan in a white stretch limo. Destination: haircut. That’s it: one day, one limo. But DeLillo crowded that day with incident. And Cronenberg, a master recalling his surreal work on eXistenZ and Naked Lunch, adapts the novel with a poet’s eye and a keen ear for language. Eric has hermetically sealed himself inside a limo designed to block out every trace of the outside world. Inside, Eric can ignore the Occupy Wall Street-like protests from the 99 percent, consult with his geek chief (Jay Baruchel) and his money guru (Emily Hampshire), submit to a prostate exam, have sex with his mistress (Juliette Binoche), and get out for disturbing meetings with his wife (Sarah Gadon) and a disgruntled former employee (Paul Giamatti). Working with gifted cinematographer Peter Suschitzky, Cronenberg creates a crumbling world in microcosm. In this fever dream of a movie, Pattinson is incendiary, notably in a climactic gun scene with the great Giamatti. Cosmopolis, demanding as it is daring, is no easy ride. I mean that as high praise.

ENTERTAINMENT ONE TO BRING DAVID CRONENBERG THRILLER  

COSMOPOLIS

TO US THEATRES ON AUGUST 17

LOS ANGELES/TORONTO  – Entertainment One Films US is thrilled to announce the US release date for David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS has been set for August 17, 2012. The film had its world premiere at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

COSMOPOLIS will open in New York and Los Angeles before expanding into additional markets.

From director David Cronenberg (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, DEAD RINGERS, THE FLY, EASTERN PROMISES) and based on the prophetic novel by Don DeLillo, comes COSMOPOLIS, a contemporary thriller that turns into a wild, hypnotic odyssey through our new millennium’s obsessions with power, money, control, information, technology, violence, sex, mortality, revolution, destruction and ultimately, redemption.

Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) – a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager – as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan.  Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters.  Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.

COSMOPOLIS also stars Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, K’Naan and Emily Hampshire, with Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti.

Cosmopolis is produced by Paulo Branco of Alfama Films and Martin Katz of Prospero Pictures, and is co-produced by Grégoire Melin of Kinology.

Entertainment One is also thrilled to bring COSMOPOLIS to audiences in Canada on June 8, 2012 and to UK theatres on June 15, 2012.
