DeLillo hits the big screen

We have yet to work out an official Zidi Publishing policy surrounding Cosmopolis. Starring Edward the Pretty Vampire as Eric Packer and directed by David Cronenberg, Cosmopolis represents the first big-screen adaptation of one of Don DeLillo’s books.

First impressions: anything but this one. Or not. If memory serves DeLillo’s work was as much screenplay as novel anyway. Reviewers complained that the characters had little sovereignty; that DeLillo treated them as sign posts along a strictly-controlled route. But watching the trailer, that disadvantage almost plays like the opposite. There is no way I will pass on seeing this film.

I still love White Noise, too, even if its critics complained about the same things. Here is the Cosmopolis trailer:
