Jake Cole's rating of the film Cosmopolis

Monsters and horror can still be found in Cronenberg's post-EXISTENZ work. In COSMOPOLIS, it might be the camera. Abel Ferrara's 4:44 this year posits that when money loses its meaning, we might learn to be human again. This suggests that money is going to take reality as we know it with it, and words and image bend and collapse into its black hole. Alienating, but exhilarating.
