It looks, to be frank, absolutely brilliant, and it's certainly dampened any doubts we might have had for the time being. And R-Patz?

Both David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson are going into Cosmopolis with something to prove. Cronenberg is the revered auteur behind A History of Violence, The Fly and Videodrome, but his stuffy last film A Dangerous Method had some fans wondering if he'd lost his touch.
