ARTICLE: ‘Cosmopolis’ “it is a work of art because is affords opportunity for thought”

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.

    Personally, I am not so impressed by this guy’s pretentious review. All good movies “offer the opportunity for thought”. That statement is not so profound. A characteristic of good art is that it holds your attention, causes discourse and discussion. We have known that these things are true of this movie for some time. Perhaps the author pissed me off by totally dismissing Rob’s personal contribution to this film and disrespecting why he was cast in the role.
