Respecting Rob because actions speak louder than words.
After the huge week we had last week it was almost a welcome relief to have a quieter one this week, especially so we could really absorb how fantastic February/March 2015 is going to be. Now we are just gearing up for next Thursday’s AACTA Awards hoping beyond hope that Rob wins his first real recognition for his portrayal of Reynolds and David gets the director’s nod *fingerstightlycrossed*. An advantage of quiet times appears to be that we get spoilt by Jules, not just with our wonderful banner celebrating the Aussie awards but also with great wallpapers, twitter and facebook banners. I sound like a broken record, but we are so so fortunate to have Jules as part of RPAU. There are imitators out there, but for me they don’t seem to have the same passion and respect for Rob that Jules does when she creates her little pieces of art. Quiet times also allow us to spend time reminiscing about Rob: The Apple Store, JakesTakes’ interview for Remember Me and Michelle spoiling us with Cannes Rob and the Friday Flashback. So much goodness. It’s Rob how can it be anything else. Film news wise – Queen of the Desert is listed as “released” on IMDbPro, and France got a release date of 30 September for LIFE. Mona Fastvold still teasing us on her instagram with shots in Budapest. I don’t post separately about this but I do “lurk” her twitter and insta for little updates like this. I’ll be posting don’t you worry the day we get confirmation that filming has in fact started. However I did come across one of the keynote speakers at the Gothenburg International Film Festival 2015 – Helena Danielsson, Executive Producer, Brain Academy “is currently in pre-production with the feature debut The Childhood of a Leader by American actor/writer/director Brady Corbet, starring Bérénice Bejo, Robert Pattinson and Stacy Martin. *clapshands*. We know that both QoTD and Life are “coming soon” to Australia thanks to Transmission Films website, but how soon we just don’t know yet. I finally finished my Maps to the Stars Review Roundup. It’s really interesting to see Rob garnering more positive responses than negative even with such a small role. I think I’m going to spend some time going back over Rob’s earlier films like Remember Me and Water for Elephants to see what kind of reviews he received for his acting then to get an idea of how far he’s progressed in the eyes of the critics. So let’s end this week with happy thoughts – Rob winning the Best Supporting Actor for The Rover on Thursday. I know some of you are expecting Rob to attend. I’ve had a few people reach out to us hoping we know or have heard rumours – if he is coming it’s being kept very close to their chests. I’ll be honest I was not really expecting Rob to be here, so if he does turn up it will surprise me more than most of you. But I’m more than happy to be surprised.
We are all familiar with Cannes, Berlin, TIFF, Sundance and even the Sydney Film Festival to name a few, but there are a tonne more smaller film festivals worldwide that don’t always get recognition. We posted about the Santa Barbara Film Festival here but we didn’t know what days MttS was screening. We can now confirm that it has 3 screenings during that festival. I’ve added a list of festivals that Maps screened at during 2014 too just to give an idea of which countries have been given a limited release. I’ll update this post if more festival come to light in 2015 since a lot of the festivals scheduled around late Feb/early March haven’t finalised their schedules yet. But here’s 2 that are definitely screening Maps to the Stars in 2015:
“Robert Pattinson … continues to evolve as a true performer”. Awards Circuit
I put together a post for reviews when Maps screened at Cannes. I’m only going to include excerpts that mention Rob’s performance or his character Jerome. Some reviews skip over Rob completely and although they may give Maps the big thumbs up, that’s not what this review roundup is about so I haven’t included them. I also am not including foreign reviews because as much as I’d like to think Google Translate can be used, it really gets lost in translation. I am happy to include though if anyone wants to translate and send me one they think should be in this post. Anyway, here’s some really great words about Rob’s performance in Maps to the Stars (and a few not so good below *blowsraspberry*). I’ll post a link for this under the Films page for Maps for ease if you want to go back and read.
“Of course, none of these characters are what they seem, save Pattinson’s Jerome, who is presented as something of a rube as the film progresses. He is constantly used by other characters in their power games and he fuels the engine of Hollywood by aspiring to its false dreams. … Maps to the Stars may shock and revolt some viewers through its characters’ despicable behaviours, or it may turn off some viewers due to Cronenberg’s detached perspective, but its power lingers in the viewer’s mind long after its credits roll. It shows that Hollywood is a monstrous machine, but that it’s a human machine, one as equally worthy of pity as disgust.” (Score: 8.5 out of 10)
“… Robert Pattinson plays his part with minimal effort but great conviction. Pattinson certainly has come a long way since his Twilight Saga days. Cosmopolis (2012) was the break that he needed and since then he has never looked back (he has been working quite hard to change his image and already has a decent résumé to show for his efforts… while he impressed everybody with a brilliant performance in David Michôd’sThe Rover, he’s just finished shooting for Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert wherein he will be seen essaying the role of T.E. Lawrence).”
With the start of the new year looming, we will try to maintain an international “release date” page for each of Rob’s films. It will be updated each week or as soon as dates are confirmed. It’s possible dates will change because as happens, movie release dates change often according to what else is being released at the time (or that’s how it works in Australia. I was once told that release dates are like a game of snakes and ladders). I’ll also add any new cinema promotional posters, otherwise I’ll just provide hyperlinks to trailers & posters that are the same as we’ve already seen but have subtitles or are dubbed. So for 2015 here are the release dates for Maps to the Stars as per IMDbPro unless otherwise stated:
