Cosmopolis

Cosmopolis ★★½

Cronenberg Ranked

I didn't hate this nearly as much as I expected to but it did prove my fears correct by exemplifying exactly why DeLillo wouldn't really translate all that well outside of prose (I could MAYBE see someone making White Noise work, but it'd be tricky).

Aside from there just not being much to gain from viewing this particular story in a cinematic format, the overt post-moderness of the character dialogue loses most of its poeticism when you actually hear it coming out of someone's mouth, and the stage-y delivery of a lot of it doesn't help.
