2019: The Pieper Review -- Film #533 (11/11/2019)
Is Robert Pattinson's Packer scarier than Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman? It's a question that I will have to wrestle with for the rest of my life. Cronenberg delivers yet another ice-cold, thought-provoking picture with 2012's Cosmopolis. The tone is not for every taste, but for audiences willing to enter a the world of the unfeeling 1%, it could be one of the Canadian master's best. It's always a good sign if I want to rewatch a movie immediately.
