I saw Cosmopolis this weekend.
If you’ve seen the extended trailer, you’ll be fairly well-prepared for the film to come.
Slick. Stylized. Bizarre. Yet surprisingly funny — in that dark, ‘the audience is almost scared to laugh’ kinda way.
Robert Pattinson is in every scene — the camera can’t seem to look away — and the state of the world is reflected in the state of his expensive suit: pristine at the start of the film, a rumpled mess by the end.
And what an end! His meeting with Paul Giamatti — the final 22 minutes of the film — is worth the entire price of admission…plus popcorn, soda and Chewy Spree.
It’s not like anything you’ve ever seen. And if you didn’t think so before, you’ll leave the theatre convinced…
Pattinson can act.
