‘Cosmopolis’ Makes the TIFF: Canada’s Top 10 List

Arriving in the wake of the Occupy movements and the recent financial collapse, David Cronenberg’s stylish and incredibly timely adaptation of Don DeLillo’s apocalyptic satire follows a billionaire financier (Robert Pattinson) as he creeps across an imploding New York City in a limo, his life of absurd luxury collapsing around him. It’s a scenario geared expressly toward Cronenberg’s sensibilities, playing out like Videodrome — or, as The New Yorker argued, Crash — transplanted to the increasingly endangered world of the one per cent. Boasting the hippest cast of any Canadian film this year, Cosmopolis also stars Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method, Antiviral), Jay Baruchel (Goon, Tropic Thunder), Emily Hampshire (The Trotsky, My Awkward Sexual Adventure) and imports Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Samantha Morton.
