Cannes Movie Review: Cosmopolis

Cronenberg has earned a pass. It’s fine. It’s still strange that he chose Robert Pattinson to play a lead and a very pivotal role in his new movie,but oh well. Pattinson wasn’t terrible, but his performance kept the movie from being very good, and it could have been great. To his credit, it wasn’t an easy task. He is asked to play a lost soul, a young man who is looking for meaning and purpose in the busy world, and a young man who happens to be incredibly rich and famous.

It’s too bad, I was very excited. It’s worth another look I suppose, as the dialogue-driven film features a series of conversations between Pattinson’s character and various people in his life, and it all takes place across one day in the city as he travels through town to the barber.

So it’s interesting for a bit, the beginning and ending really, but it’s a letdown ultimately, and that’s just too bad. Maybe next time.
