A beautiful meditative take on capitalism and time
Cosmopolis intrigues with its dense dialogue, surreal journey, and Pattinson's performance. A polarising, thought-provoking ride.
This is a low 3. It's hard as hell to follow and jumps a lot, but it is amusing. I think people will like it as it ages though.
An underrated Cronenberg film. Cronenberg has said his films are from the disease's POV. Here, the disease is capitalism.
Pattinson is fine in this movie. The movie itself though could've been a lot better.
Interesting movie. Pattinson did very well in this role.
Such a weird movie that is all over the place, you never really know what is going on
I always hated that it has been impossible for me to understand or even manufacture an interpretation of the film. HATED.
Awful plot and execution of story. Bland characters in an interesting world (that the film chooses not to focus on), makes for a real slog
This shows Robert Pattinson isn't a bad actor and has range for Bruce Wayne.
