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?

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!!

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...

Cosmopolis is a rather dismal movie about a very small slice of what we are to believe is a window on a dystopian world. Robert Pattinson plays the main protagonist, Eric Packer, a late 20's disaffected billionaire who spends most of the movie in his stretch limo slowly riding across the city to a haircut. Along the way, various characters, in turn, join him in the limo as it dawdles along. Each has at least one major flaw to go with a twisted outlook on life, as do the people Packer encounters on his occasional laborious forays into the world outside his limo. Throughout, Packer trumps them all, maintaining his disconnected, often trance-like demeanor, whether in the throes of sex, having his limo pelted by demonstrators as he watches idly from his seat, desultorily discussing software with one of his minions, or engaging in potential and actual gunplay. Suicide never seems to be out of the question, or even far behind.

The movie deals heavily in allegory and is chock full of metaphors of the declining state of society as interpreted by screenplay-writer/director David Cronenberg from the Don DeLillo novel. Though there actually are a few points along the way that give the story some life - interesting visuals and important moments - they are dragged down by the somber overtones and sullenness of the portrayals. Of course, this is drama, but overall the film leans too severely on unrelieved angst.
