I’ve watched the trailer for David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS half a dozen times now, and I still have no clue what it’s about. Never before have I been so excited by utter confusion. What I do know is it’s based on a novel by Don DeLillo, it’s Cronenberg’s follow-up to last year’s A DANGEROUS METHOD, and it premieres at the Cannes Film Festival next month (Wikipedia also tells me a plot description of DeLillo’s novel, not that it makes much more sense). At this point I can’t say I quite understand the decision to cast Robert Pattinson in the lead role, but I trust Cronenberg implicitly, and if he wants to work with the TWILIGHT star, that’s reason enough for me to want to see the results whenever they premiere on this side of the Atlantic.
