SCANS: New Eric Packer still, review and essay on the “alluring” Cosmopolis from Sight and Sound

Sight and Sound published their Cosmopolis coverage from Cannes. It includes a new still of Eric tie-less and pensive, a lengthy essay and review. We’ve highlighted some of these parts but you can read everything in its entirety from the scans in the gallery.

“The urge to destroy is a creative urge.”

Essay excerpt

Highlights from the review:

  • The film wants to penetrate the psyche of a man of modern appetites, someone who’s tasted is all so young and who now thrills to losing it all.
  • [Pattinson’s] wide eyes look increasingly haunted, his girlish lips snarl and snap out the lines with the diminishing conviction of a man losing faith.
  • This is not an easy film to watch because it puts an affect-free world on screen until near its end, when Packer gets to the base of his disorder and emotion is given some rein at last.
  • They called the limo space claustrophobic and it made me think of chauffeur Deb’s review about the angles in Cosmopolis.
  • [Cosmopolis] may yet turn out to be a blueprint for things we’d rather avoid but have to face.
