Why did they get such a shit actor to play the lead?
I don't know.
is there anything it can't do!?
Please list below.
AND another actor of equal/better renown
did anyone make the requisite scanners reference?
...make another 'body horror' film unfortunately :(
Luckily, his son Brandon has taken up the mantle however:
in front of a sold out audience. he's made plenty enough of those. i like everything he's done and think he gets mroe interesting all the time. though i am reading cosmopolis now and i think he dropped the ball on the film.
supposed to be testicles, isn't it?
just didn't really get its point across like the book does
...since A History Of Violence for my money. Cosmopolis was pretty poor, but the absolute nadir was A Dangerous Method - that was weak.
i realise i'm in a minority but i think most people didn't like it because it wasn't violent, or horror. it was still very Cronenbergian to me, but i'm also a Freud/Jung nerd so it ticked a lot of boxes.
And I preferred Eastern Promises to History of Violence by miles.
It took them forever to finish Cosmopolis, I suspect it was permanently marred by all the production difficulties.
...and it just felt as though they took two massively interesting characters and did virtually nothing with either one or their relationship.
As an aside, I watched it shortly after visiting The Freud Museum in Vienna - that is also pretty shoddy actually.
was excellent though, c'mon. funny, unconventional, with surprisingly great casting choices. and I it did feel very cronenbergian to me.
I didn't see the Frood/Young one as pretty much everyone said it was a waste of time. guess I should watch it at some point
