WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Village Voice by

To the extent that Cosmopolis functions as a super-literal conceptual exercise, it's simultaneously irritating and fascinating.

Time Out by Joshua Rothkopf

Director David Cronenberg - who knows a thing or two about bodily expressions - understands, finally, what to do with the Twilight star, turning his zombified handsomeness into a stark canvas upon which we can project our own anxieties.
80

Variety by Justin Chang

An eerily precise match of filmmaker and material, Cosmopolis probes the soullessness of the 1% with the cinematic equivalent of latex gloves.
100

The Playlist by Simon Abrams

Everything matters in Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, but not everything is necessarily the same as DeLillo's book. And that makes the film, as a series of discussions about inter-related money-minded contradictions, insanely rich and maddeningly complex. We can't wait to rewatch it.
