While being chauffeured to a haircut, Eric Parker (Pattinson) witnesses the gradual demise of his empire when a bet on a heavy exchange rate goes against him.

An eerily precise match of filmmaker and material, Cosmopolis probes the soullessness of the 1% with the cinematic equivalent of latex gloves.

Mr. Cronenberg's direction throughout "Cosmopolis" is impeccable, both inside the limo and out.

An agonisingly self-conscious and meagre piece of work.

Roger Ebert

A flawlessly directed film about enigmatic people who speak in morose epigrams about vague universal principles they show no sign of understanding.

DeLillo's brilliant analysis of the destructive power of wealth that took such seductive hold on page has a tough time gaining traction on screen.

Beyond its withering critique of contemporary capitalism, Cosmopolis is also fascinated by that ongoing Cronenbergian concern: the limitations and mutations of the human body.

An airless and inert expression of a capitalist kingpin's odyssey across a threatening New York City.

A part hypnotic, part profound, part send-up meditation on our financially imploding time.
