As Wall Street collapses, a finance golden boy spirals into sex, violence, and destruction.


Why watch this film?

Based on Don DeLillo's novel and directed by David Cronenberg ("The Fly"), "Cosmopolis" is a mix of suspense and dystopian science fiction, set in a not-so-distant future. As such, it is a distant and cold portrait of the millionaires and the educated apathy towards the humanitarian crises around them, insensitive to their personal interests and their lavish lives that, paradoxically, leave them hungry for real connections - a fact symbolized, in part, by the protagonist's total isolation in his limousine equipped with state-of-the-art technology and soundproofing. The dialogues are somewhat tense, perhaps to reflect the coldness of an elite obsessed with reason and money, which accentuates the somewhat tedious pace of the movie. Official selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2012, and with the participation of great Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Sarah Gadon.
