Directed by David Cronenberg and released in it’s home country of France/Canada in 2012.
As much as I appreciate David Cronenberg’s stylistic approach to this film aswell as an actually good performance from Robert Pattinson – I just couldn’t get into this.
Most of the actions of the main character are unwarranted and pointless, just like the majority of the dialogue. It’s also horrible to see Giamatti and Morton – two of the finest actors of the past fifteen years – have their talent wasted on pointless dialogue that goes nowhere. Yes it relates to the state of the economy, society and where it’s going with the state of technology but all in all it was very disappointing – it only gets good when it descends into madness in the riot scenes.
