For most guys, getting a haircut is a pretty simple affair and unless you're doing something fancy can probably be covered for less than $20. In David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, however, it's a far more complicated affair that takes many twists and turns. Robert Pattinson stars as powerful business magnate navigating a busy day where countless errands and unexpected events seem to collide in a way that could sink his billions of dollars. Cronenberg's films have a tendency to polarize audiences, but Cosmopolis does that two-fold: even Cronenberg fans won't all agree on whether Cosmopolis is a brilliant, simply told story ripe with complication or a mess.
We'll let you decide though, and to help with that we're giving away a Blu-ray copy of Cosmopolis. To find out how to win it, just keep reading.
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson, Water For Elephants, The Twilight Saga) - a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager - as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father's old barber, while remotely wagering his company's massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer's luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer's perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
