Movie Info

The late Andrzej Zulawski's final film, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz's novel of the same name into an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.

Cultists can claim it as proof Żuławski was doing his own thing until the end, but the film didn't need releasing so much as sectioning for public safety.

Nonstop, epistemological slapstick.

August 18, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Not by any means for the faint of heart, Cosmos is nonetheless a juddering cloudburst of pure visual and aural energy, a rare instance of deep intellectual enquiry buoyed by unexpected jolts of pulsing emotion.

At times astonishingly beautiful. The closing credits sequence alone is lovelier than some entire movies.

August 15, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Confined to a few locations and shaking with ecstasy, possibility and the torment of being alive, "Cosmos" is like absinthe distilled secretly in a prison cell.

June 17, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It is possible to appreciate Mr. Zulawski's perverse ingenuity, and to miss his eye and voice, without quite succumbing to the strenuous charms and overcooked provocations of "Cosmos."
