Cronenberg wrote the script as well as directing here, and Cosmopolis is a challenging, slow film, that treats its audience with intelligence. Pattinson works hard in the lead role, with considerable success, and the supporting players, including Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Samantha Morton are excellent, too.
Cosmopolis may not be as accessible as Cronenberg's films that more immediately preceded it, but it's a film with real substance to it, from a genuinely great director. The disc explores that, too, with the key extra feature being a documentary that goes into the making of Cosmopolis. Backed up by interviews with those involved, it's an involving piece, that digs deeper into an already-interesting film.
Whilst Cosmopolis isn't David Cronenberg at his very best, it's still an interesting, important and engaging piece of work. A film that comes strongly recommended. --Jon Foster
