5.0 out of 5 stars Meaning in life September 18, 2012
By Mary
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
*Contains Spoilers*

I read this book when Robert Pattinson signed on to the project, and to be honest, I didn't like it on the first reading. It grew on me by the second reading, but the movie made me love it. One of the challenges Cosmopolis faces is that it's impossible complete the phrase, "The moral of the story is...." and so many people, me included, dislike things that can't be easily defined. I've seen interviews with David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson where they say that it is impossible to tell you what they story is about, but don't make the mistake of thinking that it's about nothing, it's just about open to so many interpretations that it's impossible to pin down. I'll give you mine, but rest assured that if you don't like what I see, chances are you'll see something else entirely anyway.

The story, in it's most basic form, is about Eric Packer's limo ride across the crowded city to get a haircut. He encounters various people and scenarios along the way, and inexpicably he encounters his new wife at several stops along the way, even though that would seem to be impossible since he's seemingly moving forward (albeit slowly) and she appears to intend to remain somewhat stationary. In a sense I think the limo ride is a microcosm for a Eric's journey through life. There is that saying that some people are in your life for a reason and some people are in your life for a season and I think he encounters his wife several times as a symbol of all people in a person's life that they keep coming back to, but it's poignant because he never really understands her, or her him even though there is that desire. They both very much are pretending to be normal, or at least understand normal, and don't we all feel that way sometimes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth It! September 21, 2012
By lahani
I won't try and explain this movie to you, because I think it's impossible to do. There are many, many interpretations of what goes on and I believe that you have to see it for yourself to determine what it means to you. That being said, I had great conversation afterwards trying to decide just what I thought it portrayed, and I came up with several. I will finally just say that this is definitely one that I will purchase so that I can watch and re-watch it. And I'm sure that every time I see it I will come up with something different. THAT's what makes this a great movie to me! The acting, especially by Robert Pattinson, was absolutely phenomenal. The ensemble actors were all wonderful though and each brought something very different to the movie. I can't wait until this becomes available - I will be first on the list and suggest that you get on that list as well!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "We All Die Every Day!"... April 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
COSMOPOLIS follows ultra-rich, global financier Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) as he tries to get to the barber shop. Riding slowly in a stretch limousine w/ an interior not unlike the starship Enterprise, Packer encounters several of his business associates and acquaintances. Not much action takes place, other than brief sexual encounters, a riot, a prostate exam (!!), a senseless murder, half a haircut, an attempted assassination, and a .38 caliber hand-piercing. No, the power of COSMOPOLIS lies not in action, but in words. The dialogue consists of various philosophical conversations concerning life, death, commerce, technology, and various other subjects. Packer is a vastly empty man. He has reached a point in his "life" where absolutely nothing matters. To call him "bored" would be like calling the sun "warm". Packer has no real reason to be or go anywhere. His mammoth wealth is worthless. His property, like his position, is without value to him. Packer is a demi-god who has attained so much that he has nothing left to do, say, or even think. Packer is a well-dressed, well-versed corpse. What happens when a man reaches such a level of "success"? At 28 years old, Packer has seen and done it all. Since he's used up the whole earth in his pursuits, where else can he go? With COSMOPOLIS, David Cronenberg has made one of the most fascinating films of his career. Highly recommended...

5.0 out of 5 stars A multilayered film that leaves you thinking - a lot February 14, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
At the beginning of Cosmopolis, I wasn't sure what to make of the mannered speech and the way Robert Pattinson was making a young character act like a tough seasoned boss. At the same time, I was pulled in by his deliberate acting and sensed that a book by Don Delillo made into a film by David Cronenberg was going to be intelligent and interesting.

The movie takes place in a single day during a long drive from Wall Street(?) to a small barber shop where Eric, Pattinson's multimillionaire character, wants to get his hair cut. But it's not just a drive across town, it's journey during which Eric progressively rids himself of his fortune, his clothes, and his obsession with protecting himself against death. The setting is a surreal, bizarre Manhattan that's just close enough to reality to make you consider whether our world really is this absurd and unknown. As Eric finds his life falling apart during the drive, he seems to become more real and more compassionate, and when he murders one of his security people, it doesn't seem like a real act, but a metaphor for his decision to stop living with the money, status, and constant protection that enable him to avoid facing himself and avoid looking at the lives of people outside his world.

Someone, unknown to us until the end of the movie, wants to kill Eric, and his final destination turns out to be a meeting with this person(Paul Giamatti) - the barbershop is a stop on the way to find him, and also a turning point in the movie when Eric realizes the immigrant limo driver, previously too insignificant to be part of his story, is as important a character as everyone else.

From the beginning of the movie, Pattinson's character is trying to understand whether, existentially, his wealth and his status are worth anything.
