First Clip From David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis – “A Spectre Is Haunting The World”

He’s not a very nice man, this Eric Packer. And he’s got a rather oblique way of expressing himself.

David Cronenberg‘s film of Cosmopolis will take its (deliberately?) pretentious dialogue and (deliberately?) stilted performances to Cannes later this month. There’s a tone to this clip, and to the trailers, that suggests a pretty intense experience. I look forward to seeing it all play out in full.

Thanks to AICN for the embed.
