'Cosmopolis'

<b>The book</b>: "DeLillo's fervent intelligence and his fastidious, edgy prose ... weave halos of import around every event  .... The trouble with a tale where anything can happen is that somehow nothing happens." -- John Updike, The New Yorker<br><BR>
<b>Why it's unfilmable</b>: The main character spends most of the book trapped in the back of a limo in several traffic jams. Not exactly blood-stirring cinematic stuff.  <BR><br>
<b>The movie</b>: "It's fascinating but anti-cinematic and a frustrating film to get your arms around." -- Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service<br><BR>
"David Cronenberg meets Don DeLillo at last, and it's as if all the angels of heaven have come together. And said nothing." -- Kyle Smith, New York Post
