ennanovie Guess who got sick? And is still smiling? I can still see what's beautiful about my face. As I learn about my illness and progress thru recovery, it becomes easier not to assign my anxiety attacks to specific incidents in my past, or to things I hate about myself. I am learning what my triggers are, but also learning that I don't have to suppress my reaction, and that tears are not always a sign of weakness, but of me fighting the battle of my life. Depression is a real illness. I know, because no matter how much I love myself, I will always feel pain like this.

jamieteller #MovieoftheDay: #Cosmopolis (2012). I was as skeptical as anyone when it was announced that R-Pats was playing the lead in Cronenberg's newest film, but it proved to be inspired casting, as he is the soul (or anti-soul, really) of this extraordinary film. It deals with a whiz-kid Wall Street billionaire who wants a haircut, and over the course of a day traverses Manhattan in his gadget-laden limo, having lengthy discussions on the nature of modern business and modern life with a variety of associates, cheating on his wife (#SarahGadon, coolly mesmerizing), and indifferently reacting to a threat against his life, which he finally confronts in a desperate attempt to feel human again.

It's a cold, difficult film (after my first viewing, I suggested it was "anti-entertainment), and much of it still goes over my head, partially because my economic knowledge is pretty basic, but also because so much of the discourse occupies a plane outside of relatable reality. The climax involves a confrontation with a man who cannot adapt to this new, arcane system. It is basically 20 minutes of two men talking. And it's riveting.

As detached and bizarre as this film is, it's really quite entertaining. It grows more surreal as it progresses, but strangeness abounds from the start. It's a startling, challenging odyssey, but it's also funny and inventive. Cronenberg is clearly having fun with it; he adapted the script from #DonDeLillo's novel in less than a week, and the film takes the precision of the source material and gives it a kind of nervy, impish energy.

The cast is strong, with Pattinson being perfectly cast as a kind of Bateman for the new millennium, a coldly intelligent bastard who almost resents his own detachment. The rest of the cast includes #MathieuAmalric, #JulietteBinoche, #SamanthaMorton, #JayBaruchel, #PaulGiamatti, and #KevinDurand; they all fit perfectly into the surreal milieu. The score is incredible, and the song "Mecca" by #KNaan is one of my favorite film songs of the last decade. #DavidCronenberg #RobertPattinson
