I cannot get enough of these positive reviews for Rob & the film. Seeing Rob receive the praise he so truly deserves makes me so incredibly happy. Anthony Fabozzi at The Dropp has some wonderful things to say about Rob & the film which I have included below. To read the review in full, just click on the link above.
Robert Pattinson is in almost every moment of the film and gives what is without a doubt his best career performance. Pattinson plays Eric Packer with a deep internal rage, like a volcano about to erupt, but with a stone facade. Pattinson is able to convey loneliness, fear and greed while being contained in a limo for most of the film. Eric Packer is the center of the film and if Pattinson’s performance was anything less than fantastic the film would have failed. Robert Pattinson gives one of the best performances of the year in Cosmopolis.
…David Cronenberg gives Cosmopolis a slick and sterile look and feel for most of the film. This is very effective since the main character is locked away from an outside world, on the verge of chaos, for most of the film. Once Eric leaves the limo, the film takes on a much grittier tone. This is a city getting ready for an uprising and Eric is stuck in the middle of it. Cronenberg is a master filmmaker still at the top of his craft going into his fourth decade as a director, and this film is evidence of that. Whether you enjoy the film or not, Cosmopolis is something not easily forgotten.
Cosmopolis is a great film. From outstanding direction by David Cronenberg to a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis looks to be one of the year’s best films. It’s challenging and might not work for everyone, but I highly urge—even dare—everyone to give it a try.
Thanks so much Suze for the link *mwah*
