Description
Twilight heartthrob Pattinson stars as a Wall Street billionaire taking meetings in the back of a stretch limo as he is chauffeured across a near-futuristic Manhattan. Cronenberg’s eccentric, claustrophobic adaption of White Noise author Don DeLillo’s novel evokes the economic crisis. Cosmopolis was cited as one of the ten best films of all time by esteemed critic Amy Taubin, who ranked it alongside masterpieces by Hitchcock, Godard, Renoir, and Kurosawa in her 2012 Sight and Sound poll.
