Cosmopolis on Moviefone’s 10 Best Films You Didn’t See In 2012 List   2 comments

From Moviefone:

National averages suggest that most Americans watch three movies a year in theaters. Unfortunately, that means a lot of great films never end up getting seen. In 2012, there were plenty of quality releases that missed out on the big crowds. If you’re wondering what, exactly, you should’ve seen this year but didn’t, we’re here to fill you in.

The following is a list of movies that, for whatever reason, just didn’t get the attention or large-scale critical appreciation they deserved. However, each are very much worth your time.

Cosmopolis (David Cronenberg)

There seemed to be a little juice behind Canadian director David Cronenberg’s latest effort, a wonderfully meandering adaptation of Dom DeLillo’s novel of the same name that charts a single, seemingly endless limousine ride. For one, the film premiered at Cannes, to mostly ecstatic audiences (full disclosure: I was in one of them), and for another, Cronenberg loaded his bizarre contraption with a secret weapon: Robert Pattinson. As a disaffected billionaire, Pattinson showed unheard of gravitas and wit, both of which were sorely missing during his five-movie tenure as sparkly vampire Edward in the “Twilight” movies. But not even his handsome or borderline hieroglyphic face, could get people to come out to “Cosmopolis.” Granted, the movie is pretty weird. But it’s also tremendously rewarding — it works its hooks into you and, months after seeing it, I still can’t stop thinking about it

Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg’s Interview With Moviefone   4 comments

From Moviefone:

Most movie junket interviews do not have hordes of paparazzi and two burly security guards standing outside them. Then again, most junket interviews do not feature a subject who is currently in the midst of a tabloid scandal. Unfortunately, this is where Robert Pattinson finds himself right now, as he attempts to promote his new movie,”Cosmopolis.”

Thankfully, if anyone can handle the pressure, Pattinson can. Case in point: when I sat down with him and “Cosmopolis” director David Cronenberg, the 26-year-old “Twilight” star was relaxed, as he discussed his new film and its decidedly more adult tone. The movie, based on the Don DeLillo book of the same name, follows Eric (Pattinson), a billionaire asset manager who takes a ride across town in a limousine to get a haircut. Along the way, he deals with financial loss, random sexual encounters and an angry anti-capitalist, Occupy-esque crowd.

Here, Pattinson and Cronenberg talk about the fandom surrounding “Cosmopolis,” the movie’s stance against one-percenters and what it’s like filming an extended prostate exam in front of the camera. We also discussed “Videodrome” at length.

Considering the anti-capitalist bent in this film, I thought it was ironic that you two were ringing the bell of the NYSE this morning.
David Cronenberg: It was a much more surreal experience than I thought it was going to be. I thought, Yeah, we’re visiting the scene of the crime now, and it’s going to be kind of cathartic to ring the alarm bell.

Robert Pattinson: I am curious to know if anyone had actually seen the movie or had any idea what it was about.

DC: Yeah! And [people there] seemed so excited about the movie and so excited about us and were very sweet and friendly. Yet it’s such a completely different world. It’s so familiar to them. I think they think everybody knows all about what they do. And I think the infamy and fame of stock traders and fraud only enhances the idea for them, that everybody knows what’s going on. But once you’re there you realize “Oh my god. I don’t understand anything at all.” But it was a very interesting, and I would say ironic [opportunity]. To use that moment, ringing the bell to open the Stock Exchange, for “Cosmopolis,” it was very strange. Were we selling out? I don’t know [laughs]. They gave us little medals!

Rob, you mentioned on “The Daily Show” about how “Cosmopolis” is almost physically impossible to explain to people. So how do you explain it to yourself? Can you even explain it?
RP: The last interview [I did], I just started projecting things. I literally just used that as therapy sessions [laughs]. I didn’t really know what I was talking about.

DC: I was in shock! I never heard him say those things.

RP: [Laughs] I just [realized] that the movie was about things that I’ve said it’s not about. So I have no idea what I am talking about. It’s funny, my initial thought about [the film] was that the script was funny. It’s kind of a sad comedy. The first time I watched the movie, I was shocked by how sad it was. And then you start promoting [the film], and everyone else is saying it’s about capitalism [and] has all these deeper meanings, so then you start following that road. Then I [say to myself] “Interesting, that’s interesting. I should talk about it in an interesting way.” I mean, I always knew it was interesting but you kind of…It’s like looking at a rock. It can be anything.

Moviefone: ‘Cosmopolis’ – Everything you need to know   3 comments

From Moviefone:

Imagine, if you will, a movie that takes place almost entirely in a stretch limousine, with the cameras trained directly on the main character. This is David Cronenberg‘s latest film, Cosmopolis, and if you didn’t know already, it stars Twilight alumnusRobert Pattinson in the lead role.

At times dark, at times light(er), but all the time serious, Cosmopolis is a cerebral, dialogue-heavy take on Don DeLillo’s book of the same name. With the limo serving as his corporate office, Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a youthful entrepreneur with money to burn and a desire for something more. For most of the film, Pattinson meets-and-greets with people in his limo/office — it’s a series of bizarre vignettes, with his daily visit from his doctor as one of the highlights.

Cosmopolis is a look inside a brilliant mind, but also a voyeuristic insight into what it might be like to lose it all. We’ve put together a bunch of things you need to know about the movie, just in case you were expecting something else entirely.
