Popcorn Culture - Throwback: Cosmopolis

This week, we're throwing back to Cosmopolis, a film that many consider Robert Pattinson's first step out of Twilight typecasting and into the realm of acclaimed experimental projects. Directed by David Cronenberg, Cosmopolis tells the story of a young billionaire who takes a ride across Manhattan to get a haircut. The journey soon becomes an odyssey of weirdness as he meets eccentric characters and watches his empire collapse. We talk about the obviously trippy nature of this Cronenberg vehicle, what shines and what doesn't, as well as Pattinson's evolution as a serious actor.
