Cosmopolis (2012)

Directed by: David Cronenberg
Country: Canada / others

Plot: A 28-year-old billionaire start to see his world falling apart.
Review: "Cosmopolis" is an odd and complex movie. It lingers in abstraction for a lot of time, until we finally unfold what is going on. The movie didn't gain my admiration but let me tell you that the idea was bold and certainly found its inspiration in the world's current economical situation. A bored and depressed wealthy man, keeps wandering through the streets of NY, inside of a futuristic limo, having weird encounters with several people. His concerns are economy, sex and health. In a city inflamed by severe protests against capitalism, future and technology, will this man be able to get rid of the pressure? False espionage or simply prophecy, its monotone and tricky dialogs didn't catch me.
