We don’t usually post film clips, but Cosmopolisis one of the films that I am intrigued to see, even with all the weirdness that it seems to have based on the trailers. This clip is entitled “The Smell of Sex” and features Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon. The film had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and is about to be released in the US.
Cosmopolis is directed by David Cronenberg based on the book by Don DeLillo. Cronenberg also wrote the screenplay. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Paul Giamatti, Kevin Durand, Juliette Binoche, and Sarah Gadon.
“Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson)–a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager–as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, aparade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.”
Cosmopolis is in select theatres August 17, 2012, and I am hoping there is wider release after that.
