The Story
Billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) rides slowly across Manhattan in his limousine that he uses as his office while on his way to his preferred barber, even though there are traffic jams. They are caused by a visit of the president of the United States and by the funeral of Eric's favourite musician, whose music he plays in one of his two private elevators. He has recently married. In the car and elsewhere he has meetings with his wife, who does not want sex with him, to save energy she needs for her work. Instead he has sex with other women. In his car, while having a meeting, he has his doctor carry out his daily medical checkup; Eric worries about the doctor's finding that he has an asymmetrical prostate. After devastating currency speculation he kills his bodyguard and follows a path of further self-destruction, including visiting his potential murderer and shooting himself in his hand on purpose.
