Midway during the conference, David Cronenberg interjected: "My movie is not only about the movie business. I could have set it in any place where people are desperate, greedy. Wall Street, for example. It is not only about Hollywood. To say so would be shortchanging the movie."

It's been a while since someone offered Griffin Dunne the chance to be the star of a movie. Or at least one that he wanted to star in. So when Justin Schwarz approached him with The Discoverers, Dunne was ready to say yes -- and is glad he did.

As part of their "Best of 2012" series, the good folks at MOMI are screening David Cronenberg's film adaptation of the great Don Delilo's 2000 novel, Cosmopolis. Both are worth your time. Note to purists: skip this review, the film, and read the book first.

Movie Review: Cosmopolis

Marshall Fine | Posted 10.13.2012 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

As one would expect from Cronenberg, there are sudden moments of shocking violence to go with the moments of unsexy sex. None of it will distract you from the fact that this limo, like the whole enterprise titled Cosmopolis, is going nowhere.

David Cronenberg's new film Cosmopolis depicts a world so skewed by capitalism that rats are about to become the unit of currency. The shots are masterful. But what makes the film brilliant is the startling dialogue from Don DeLillo's novel.

Kerouac in Cannes: A Road Not Taken

Regina Weinreich

I am pleased that the reports from Cannes about the On the Road, Walter Salles' film are mainly favorable, although I have taken note that some say there is no inner world for the characters, that the film has no discernable plot, that it is overlong.
