Product description

Product Description

New York is in turmoil, the age of capitalism is drawing to a close and Eric Packer, a high finance golden boy is chauffeured across the city in his extravagant limousine to get a haircut. A visit from the President of the United States paralyses Manhattan and as the day goes by, an eruption of wild activity unfolds on the city's streets. Eric watches helplessly as his empire collapses and as his paranoia intensifies during the 24-hour period, he starts to piece together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination.

From Amazon.co.uk

The union of director David Cronenberg and Twilight star Robert Pattinson is hardly a predictable one, but the pair prove quite the combination with Cosmopolis. A drama set across 24 hours in New York City, the film sees Pattinson as Eric, a rich asset manager on a trip across Manhattan in a luxury limousine. But it's no ordinary trip: with Manhattan preparing for the visit of the President of the United States, things soon start to go very, very wrong for Eric.

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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.
