Movie Tuesday: Cosmopolis at the Angelika

Posted on 04 Sep 2012 at 6:06am

From director David Cronenberg (A History of Violence) and based on the prophetic novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis is a hypnotic odyssey through our obsession with power, money, technology, violence, and sex.

Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson), a 28 year old financial whiz kid, as he heads out in his stretch limo to get a haircut while remotely wagering his company’s fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and a myriad of intimate encounters as his perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
