It's not a 'easy' film to enjoy and it is certainly flawed, and although I much prefer Cronenberg's earlier 'body horror' style films, I'd say that Cosmopolis was one of his better films from his newer post-2000s output.
As i mentioned in my review i thought it not a patch on Maps to the Stars or A Dangerous Method.

They all score very close together for me:

Cosmopolis: 73/100
A Dangerous Method: 71/100
Maps to the Stars: 64/100

So on Letterboxd I filtered all the films I've seen which came out in the 2010s and sorted them in order of my highest ratings, I'm pretty surprised by some of these and my opinion may have changed on a lot of them, but these are the only films I scored 5/5 for, obviously gut/emotional reaction on some of them but others were outstanding.

13 out of these 18 I've only seen once...

You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N.
