Cosmopolis - Trailer
Director David CronenbergYear 2012Genre(s) Alternative
In a luxury stretched limousine on the way to get a haircut from his father's barber, the ambitious 28-year-old billionaire that is Eric Packer enters chaos and anarchy as the streets of Manhattan begin to collapse around him. His future, once apparently carved in stone, becomes uncertain as political protestors and violent rioters attack the city from the inside following a visit from the President of the United States. Eric sees his treasured empire melt before his eyes as he looks on, unable to act or give out orders; he soon begins to understand, through a series of clues dotted about New York through the confusion, that the disturbances are leading to his imminent execution.
'Cosmopolis' is adapted from the novel of the same name by Don De Lillo. Thrilling and frenzied, and based on all of the 21st century's main curses including sex, money, violence, government and power, this flick is the perfect nail-biting venture for the thrill-seeking movie fanatic. From the director of 'A History of Violence', 'Eastern Promises' and 'The Fly' David Cronenberg, 'Cosmopolis' was nominated for the Palme d'Or award at this year's (2012) Cannes Film Festival. The movie was released earlier this year and can now be viewed in cinemas across the UK.
