Cosmopolis: presentato a Cannes il nuovo cult movie di Cronenberg

Presentato a Cannes il film capolavoro di David Cronenberg. Con Cosmopolis, nei cinema da oggi, tratto dall’omonimo romanzo di Don DeLillo, il regista visionario canadese fa tornare a parlare di sé con un cast d’eccezione. Da Juliette Binoche a Paul Giamatti a Robert Pattinson, il vampiro di Twilight, nei panni del giovane miliardario Eric Packer, personificazione di un sistema economico fragile. Fra l’Ulisse di Joyce e lo sperduto ricercatore di taglie di Neuromante, Eric il ‘troppo contemporaneo’ personaggio del romanzo di Don DeLillo, tradotto in screenplay dallo stesso Cronenberg, è un trasmutato, ennesimo protagonista dei nostri tempi e forse anche di quelli futuri.

Una tempesta perfetta. Cosmopolis al momento della prima pubblicazione dev’essere apparso qualcosa del genere, un evento in anticipo sulla coscienza collettiva, un Minority Report girato dall’interno di una limousine, che durante il film vediamo trasformarsi nel mirino di un cecchino. All’esterno la folla esplosiva di una rivoluzione di massa.

Director: David Cronenberg Writers: David Cronenberg (screenplay) Don DeLillo (novel)
With Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti…

Cosmopolis plot: Riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager’s day devolves into a odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart
