Cosmopolis is a film that will really divide people, it isn’t really conventional but David Cronenberg rarely is and this is where his strengths as a filmmaker lie. I really did not like his previous effort A Dangerous Method and it was his most conventional film to date. Cosmopolis has a lot more in common with the likes of Naked Lunch, Crash and eXistenZ, films that are certainly not conventional and drown in that Cronenberg flavour. I really cannot easily describe Cosmopolis, I feel this is something that just needs to be experienced, it is one wild and unique ride. It is a film that is unlike any other and one that you really cannot get a grasp of fully after just one viewing. That is the beauty of Cronenberg, he wants his audience to experience his art over and over because there are so many layers to uncover.
