Words cannot possibly begin to describe my dislike for Cosmopolis, a bad film from somebody I consider to be a good director, David Cronenberg. I’ll try anyways. It’s an abstract, avante-garde waste of time, that begins slow and grinds painfully to a halt.

The Words is a film that tries to be a bit too smart for its own good. It is a story within a story within a story, none of which are even the least bit interesting.
Dennis Quaid plays an author of a popular book called “The Words,” and is giving a reading of the book to an excited audience. As he reads, his characters and story are portrayed by Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana. Cooper plays a struggling author who happens upon an old manuscript, which he then publishes under his own name. The book is a massive hit and the author finally finds success. However, an old man (Jeremy Irons) is stalking him. Turns out, the old man was the original author.
