Director David Cronenberg has made some fantastic films over his career including 'The Fly,' 'Videodrome,' 'A History of Violence,' 'Scanners' and 'Cosmopolis' which opens in theaters tomorrow. But don't expect him to direct a superhero movie any time soon. The director recently was asked about 'The Dark Knight Rises' and had some harsh words for the Batman franchise.

‘Cosmopolis’ Review

Entertainment One
Entertainment One

It's better to think of David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' as a dream than a movie. It might not work in cinematic terms -- it's talky, it's stiff, it's aimless -- but it makes perfect sense in hypnagogic ones.

The film, based on a novel by Don DeLillo, has been billed in some corners as a science-fiction story, but that's not quite right. Other than the protagonist's hi-tech limo -- which has touchscreens, swivel chairs, and a hidden pull-out toilet -- nothing in the New York City of 'Cosmpolis' looks all that different from our own. When our hero eats lunch, it's at a generic coffee shop. When he passes people on the street, they're dressed like normal 2012 citizens. Things grow increasingly hostile -- and increasingly weird -- on the other side of his limousine windows, but they never get any more technologically advanced. This is more of a twisted fantasy of the present than a vision of the future.

There is a sense that David Cronenberg has gone soft. Sure, 'A History of Violence' had it's share of brutality, but the last couple films have not had the intense mind-games mixed with a smattering of sex and violence that marked Cronenberg's career until recently. And with his latest film starring Robert Pattinson, has the man gone soft? Think again... watch the trailer for 'Cosmopolis.'
