Great Cosmopolis Review by HeyUGuys   4 comments

From HeyUGuys

Say what you will about the Twilight series but you can’t lay the blame at the feet of Robert Pattinson who is just playing an iconic character written to appeal to young teenage girls. Common opinion seems to be that once the series is over, Pattinson is pretty much done. His work in Cosmopolis proves that he is actually the real deal, Pattinson is in every scene and carries the film with ease having to cope with heavy dialogue in scenes that seem to favour a really long take. His portrayal of the character is flawless, a world of pain in his eyes always simmering below the surface of his controlled and manicured exterior. Due to the film mostly taking place in a limousine, Cosmopolis does at times feel less like a film and more like a stage production and Cronenberg favouring the aforementioned long takes doesn’t help matters much. When you have actors of the calibre of Juliet Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Samantha Morton popping up in pivotal moments to deliver the weird, wonderful dialogue of Don DeLillo though, then much of it is just a pleasure to watch.

Cosmopolis is perhaps the most un-commercial film released this year but somehow starring everyone’s favourite pin-up. It’s also one of the most rewarding experiences this year if you have the ear and patience for it and a timely film about the fragility of our world and the people who control it.
