Where do I begin? Everything is so well adapted, and it's like Cronenberg said "the dialogue in the movie is 100% from the book". This film is not for everybody, is complex but you want to watch it again and again so you can fully engross all the lines. For me, none of the performances dissapoint that makes it more awesome. I think with time Cosmopolis will become a cult film. Thank you Cronenberg... read more

Incredibly difficult for me to REALLY get an idea of how much I enjoyed the film. I feel that with another re-watch, my enjoyment would improve. One awesome end performance by Paul Giamatti. Really worth a watch this one!

Here is a movie from a director that I admire greatly, David Cronenberg, featuring zeitgeist themes and dialog, which I just could not get into the frequency of. Others love it, but I found it an annoying, shrill frequency to try to tune myself in on. The best word I could think of for it was didactic. And that’s most of my problem with it.

New York is in turmoil, the age of capitalism is drawing to a close end. Eric Packer, a high finance golden boy, dives into a white limousine. While a visit from the President of the United States paralyses Manhattan, Eric Packer has one obsession: getting a haircut at his barber’s at the other end of the city. As the day goes by, chaos sets in, and he watches helplessly as his empire collapses. Also he is sure that someone is going to assassinate him. When? Where? He is about to live the most decisive 24 hours of his life.

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2012 (10 movies items)

"Another major disappointment from someone whom I know is a good director – in this case, David Cronenberg. Maybe it's a faithful adaptation of the novel it's based on, but to me, it just seems like one of those annoyingly style-fuelled art house films. Almost the entirety of the movie is philosophical dialogue. Now, I'm not inherently against dialogue-fuelled movies (hell, my favourite movie of all time is 12 Angry Men!), but this movie's dialogue is not the least bit interesting. Maybe it's s"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"20.8, Netflix Cosmopoliksessa hypätään suoraan ihan kiinnostavaa elokuvaa enteilevään dialogiin, mutta into katosi suht nopeasti huomatessani elokuvan olevan pitkälle näitä puhuvien päiden täyttämiä kohtauksia, joihin pariin on tottakai pitänyt tunkea väkinäisyydessään lähinnä nolostuttavaa naimista. Loppua kohden elokuva nostaa hieman päätään, kun ilmapiirissä on jotai lopun alkua enteilevää ja keskustelutkin alkavat olla mielenkiintoisia epäjohdonmukaiselta tuntuvan"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: March (34 movies items)

"First viewing - March 14th Cosmopolis seems to have the worst reputation out of all of Cronenberg's films, and after seeing it I guess I understand why. The cast is a mixed bag, the early scenes in the limo are ugly to the point of distraction, & overall it's kinda all over the place. And yet I found it to be more compelling as it rolled along, producing some subtle social commentary while closely examining how celebrity can quickly come to a crashing halt. There are a lot of ideas throughout t"
