(Andrzej Zulawski, 2015) · Cosmos uses the whodunit as a jumping off point for an unclassifiable exploration of the intersection of mystery and ecstatic creation, dumping Holmes and Watson for an aspiring writer who has just flunked law school and a cinephile fashionista fresh out of Paris. The late Polish provocateur Andrejz Zulawski's final film caps a career full of uncompromising personal vision, serving up gleeful, rapid-fire what-the-fuckery like only Zulawski could.
