    I couldn't read last night, haha, so I decided to read Cosmopolis, which is my first DeLillo novel. I liked the prose and the overall feel of the novel, but I don't know if I thought that it had enough of a payoff. Said novel really isn't considered to be the author's best.

    So, um, yeah, I am skeptical about the film. It seems like it will be interesting, maybe to me, at least, lol, but in the this is so awesome kind of way. :/ Who knows?

    I'll say this, Cronie is certainly following his muse for better or worse.

    Sounds like someone has joined the 'old ****s whose **** don't stink' club. Shame on him. Mind yer business(see there folks...I actually came to the defense of Christopher Nolan. Don't get used to it).

    From Fangoria...

    COSMOPOLIS is most assuredly a film that audiences with only passing exposure to Cronenberg may reject. But like A DANGEROUS METHOD, which on the surface played like Merchant Ivory with a sex drive, it is simply another tale of the folly of man, the idiocy of society and the illusion of the norm. Its character breakdown is perhaps less slimy, but no less profound than that of Seth Brundle’s or Max Renn’s, maybe even more so because it relies on the mind and the word over the prosthetic and gory. In other words, this is vintage David Cronenberg, but an even more sophisticated, refined version.

    Anybody seen Cosmopolis? I didn't. :(

    Bah! I hate limited releases. Too lazy to go where these films are playing.

    I saw it. Didn't care for it. I thought Pattinson was not very good, and (honestly), I didn't even know who he was.
