What’s nice about Cosmopolis is since the settling of the film into public awareness, articles have been coming out that are more thought-provoking. This excerpt is the final paragraph from Dear Cinema but summarizes the entire article nicely:
What has just been said about Cosmopolis is not an explanation but more in the nature of a provocation, which is also the sense of the film. Cronenberg’s films are rarely impeccable – in the sense that the intentions behind each one of them are hardly clear. As in Videodrome (1983) and Crash (1996) there is complexity in Cosmopolis which is not fully realized and much of the conversation only hints. But in essence, the film is a work of art – not because it is formally perfect but because it affords opportunity for thought, one thing that cinema does not often provide today.
