Cosmopolis divided critics and baffled audiences in Cronenberg's vastly under-appreciated latest offering. We could seriously go on for hours about why Cosmopolis was the number 1 most overlooked film of 2012 and why it shouldnt even be on this list at all. For every complaint about this film, from Pattinson's detached acting to the conversations that are at cross purposes, the only response is "but THAT WAS THE POINT!!" again and again whilst repeatedly banging the complainer's head against a wall . Pattinson's character's detachment was masking...his utter, desperate detachment. The conversations that were at cross purposes were because people there couldn't communicate with each other, I mean...gah. Don't get me started (again). Cosmopolis was hugely under-appreciated in 2012 and for this reason rounds off our top 10 with the #1 spot.
