Philadelphia Weekly: "Robert Pattinson was robbed for Best Actor Nomination at the Oscars"...!

Best Actor

Who may win: Is the star of Midnight Meat Train really about to become an Oscar winner? Daniel Day-Lewis does more than impersonate Lincoln, but it’s still an impersonation. Denzel Washington is a good alkie, but it’s still an alkie role. Hugh Jackman struggles to sing with Tom Hooper’s camera pressed into his nose. And The Master seems to be punished for being difficult, so sorry, Joaquin Phoenix. Not that BCoop won’t deserve it: He’s movie-crazy without being show-offy, and he always keeps his character grounded by his sense of humor.

Who should win: Phoenix. This is a full-bodied performance, in that Phoenix reimagines how the human anatomy works from the ground up, even if that means delivering half his dialogue out of the corner of his mouth à la Popeye. Watching Hoffman’s charlatan try, and fail, to tame this wild beast was a direct pleasure in a movie otherwise stubbornly ambiguous.

Who should have won overall: As much as I want to say Denis Lavant, for his literally shape-shifting work in Holy Motors, no performance was as exciting as Tim Heidecker’s raging wealthy dickhead routine in The Comedy. And I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Robert Pattinson wuz robbed—for Cosmopolis, not Breaking Dawn 2.

Best Adapted Screenplay

What may win: Tony Kushner, Lincoln. This seems obvious, although never underestimate Silver Linings Playbook fever.

What should win: People—detractors, but his fanbase, too—tend to overemphasize the look of Wes Anderson’s films, to the extent that they forget the films originate on the page. (Probably inside a typewriter.) Moonrise Kingdom is his most beautiful, if not best, film yet, and the beauty extends to the script Anderson wrote with Roman Coppola.

What should have won overall: David Cronenberg’s script for Cosmopolis makes great a so-so Don DeLillo novel, although its real power emerged when the actors came to speak their lines. Who knew Robert Pattinson was put on earth to deliver overly-stylized DeLillo dialogue?

CosmopolisFilm has done a amazing job by compiling of all the "ranking" and "Best Of 2012" "Cosmopolis" made....
have a look... and be proud...!!!
The Cinephiliacs/Peter Labuza: Number 1 film of 2012!
Cinemart: Number 1 Film of 2012!
City Connect: Number 1 Film of 2012! “I know this is going to raise a few eyebrows, but I can explain. Yes, the dialogue is strange – that’s why it’s the best written movie of the year. And yes, it makes no attempt to emotionally engage with the audience – but that’s the point. Cronenberg is presenting to us an uncomfortably realistic vision of the future, where capitalism leaves us as emotionless unsatisfied vampires. It’s proved to be a little too distant and unattached for some people, but for me it was a work of sheer brilliance.”
Art Forum/Amy Taubin: Number 1 film of 2012!
San Francisco Bay Guardian: Number 1 film of 2012!
Cahiers Du Cinema: 2nd out of 10

The Film Stage: 3rd out of 10
Philadelphia Weekly: 3rd out of 10
Film Capsule: 3rd out of 10 – “Cosmopolis is a slow, maddening descent into the hollow center of modern America, a vain search for meaning in an age of endless, pulsating data, and a trip across town to get a haircut. In other words, Don DeLillo’s heady novel is perfect material for director David Cronenberg, who has long proven adept and unusually insightful at making our technological fetishes grotesquely literal.”

Achilles & the Tortoise: 6th out of 10
The Alamo Drafthouse Programmers: 7th out of 10 – “In my experience, the audience laughed uncomfortably throughout, or walked out of the theater during, scenes that to me read as wholly sincere, unable to process its heady mix of intellectual demagoguing, primal attraction, and oddly uncinematic staging. There are moments in this narrative where nobody talks, where the walls of the white limo block out any outside sound whatsoever — in other words, moments of total silence. Robert Pattinson’s character and the story that surrounds him exist in a world within and yet without the real world — a kind of nothing space or vacuum that glides effortlessly through New York City for the most trivial of reasons — a simple haircut. I felt initially ambivalent towards this film, but could not stop thinking about it days and weeks afterward. Ultimately, I gave in to what felt right and decided I was in love with it.”

Arizona Newszap: 9th out of 10 – “Cronenberg is nothing if not consistently innovative, in terms of form and content. With Cosmopolis, we get him at his best in both.”
Movie Maker: 9th out of 12
Processed Grass: 9th out of 66 - “There’s this tense dichotomy between this safe space and an outer world in turmoil, that makes the collision of the two, both physically and found in Pattinson’s performance, all the more intense.”

Chicago Reader: 10th out of 10
Cinemablend: 10th out of 10
Yuppee Mag: 10th out of 10
Time Out New York: 10th out of 10
Compulsory Internet Presence: 10th out of 10 – “A grand, weird, bold effort even by Cronenberg’s standards, this film is an absolutely mesmerizing adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel. I could speak here about how timely the film is with its unsparing critique of capitalist society. Or how Robert Pattinson delivers an astonishingly assured performance that hopefully portends a career full of them. Or how the score – a collaboration between Howard Shore and the band Metric – sustains and enhances the general mood of dread hanging over the entire film. But really, perhaps the best thing about this film is how it feels like the work of a completely vibrant, reinvigorated filmmaker. I was not at all expecting a film this vital and meticulously crafted on the heels of his most recent effort – 2010’s A Dangerous Method - but here we are with what might be Cronenberg’s strongest and most unique effort since 1996’s Crash. I want to shout it from the rooftops. This film is a treasure.”

Shoot the Critic: 1 of 6 in no order – “Robert Pattinson steps up to the challenge of playing the twisted, self-doubting, masochistic, and sexually insatiable protagonist. He has lots of sex, philosophizes on life, gets lectured on art and theory, faces death, kills, and gets half a hair-cut – among other activities, all shot in a typically artificial yet beautiful Cronenberg way.”

Processed Grass: 4th out of 5 Top Actors - “[Pattinson] delivers a pitch perfect performance in the role of a detached financial wunderkind. There’s a confidence and tragedy to Pattinson’s work here, but it’s toward the end, as the film’s world spirals out of control, that allows Pattinson to show why he belongs on this list and keeps his name as one to continue to monitor moving forward.”
