DVD Cosmopolis: This might be the Das Boot of Wall Street movies. But instead of taking place inside a U-boat, the movie is shot almost entirely within a white stretch limo, following the strange horror of driving across Manhattan for a haircut. In David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel, Robert Pattinson plays 28-year-old billionaire Eric Packer, who decides that his perfectly coiffed 'do needs a trim. Despite the protestations of his security chief, who warns that the president is in town, closing down much of the city, Eric insists on journeying to his favorite barbershop. In an Odyssey-like turn, he stumbles upon a parade of characters and hazards. It's hard to escape the inkling that the abstruse discourse would be better appreciated by a reader than a moviegoer. There's probably some deeper message about money's inability to fulfill insatiable appetites. But the film's takeaway seems best summed up by the limo visitor who wonders: Do you ever get the feeling you have no idea what's going on? On DVD and Blu-ray.
