David Cronenberg Last Film: Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg. Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg. Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg… What to say about him? When you think about Hitchcock or Lubitsch you can easily imagine the type of film you are going to watch. The film can be good or not so good, but you imagine more or less the discursive lines of the argument, the type of interpretation and many kind of things.

The other day I watched Cosmopolis (2012) and, before watching it, I didn’t know what to expect. The last film of David Cronenberg was A Dangerous Method (2011), a historical movie about the relationship between Freud and Jung. It was a good film but it was not a Cronemberg pure film and I would like to know what is a ‘Cronemberg film’. Is The Fly a pure Cronenberg style? Scanners? Maybe eXistenZ or Videodrome? In fact, I don’t know but I have one good thing to say about a Cronemberg film: it’s always different.

 

Cosmopolis is the story about a young rich man played by (don’t be scared, please)… Robert Pattinson! Well, I must say that when he is not a young, seductive and a little smooth vampire he is not a bad actor at all. Of course he is not Daniel Day Lewis but let’s wait some years for this man. He is still young and read the Twilight series might be traumatic for everybody –maybe after Cronenberg directed the movie about Freud and Jung he began to think on Pattison for the role, sorry for the joke-. This rich young man is very very rich and he has bodyguards, a big limousine but he has some kind of paranoid problems. The world is in chaos and the protests are everywhere. He is calmed and his consultants come to the car to talk with him. There is some kind of group talking about economics and rats (good reflection in the movie) but he is worried for some kind of various sexual problems.

There’s the beginning of the film but the atmosphere is created. He is married with a pretty rich girl but they haven’t shared the bed yet –sometimes, it’s great to be poor-… the outside world and a strange market crisis is beginning to change the mind in our character. What is happening? We don’t know but we are beginning to be intrigued. What is our main character looking for? We don’t know his name ever and the atmosphere is getting more and more unreal. Are we inside a David Lynch film? We even miss some kind of blood –remember, we are watching a David Cronenberg film-.

 

I don’t know if Cosmopolis is Cronenberg’s best film but I must say that it’s one of his films that I like most. A mixture of atmosphere, good screenplay (I would like to read the novel) and strange moments plenty of originality. I know Cronemberg is not perfect but… who is? Really good dialogues, great atmosphere. I recommend it.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
