Art

The Australian Premiere of “How To Be” was held last Saturday night at University Hall, UTS, Sydney.  We would love to thank the 400+ fans who helped make the evening a great success and it was a pleasure meeting some of you face to face on the night.

Sorry it has taken me 2 days to post this, but Rob’s performance was so entrancing that I completely forgot to do the post!  I had heard that Rob’s portrayal of Art was very close to how he is in real life and after now having seen the film I am convinced that this must be true.  Rob’s performance is flawless (although we all know what a talent he is!) and my expectations were definitely exceeded.

It was great to hear the audience laugh with Art and react to his pain at some of the awkward, depressing and painful moments.  It would be hard for me to pick a favourite scene, but two of my favourites are Art’s attempts to play basketball during his volunteer work (because we’ve all heard about Rob’s non-existent athletic ability) and the pep-talk Art gives himself in the mirror before his performance of “Doin’ Fine”. 

I could wax lyrical about Rob, but to be honest the entire cast helps make this film the success that it is.  Not to mention the fantastic script by Oliver Irving.  It is no wonder this film has won so many awards and each one is well deserved.

If you want to know more about “How To Be” then I recommend you visit their website www.howtobemovie.com.  I’m not sure why this film is yet to be picked up by an Australian distributor, but don’t despair, it hopefully will be soon.  In any event, we hear they are working on the DVD (including outtakes) so we will eventually be able to buy it.

Again, thanks everyone who came for making it a great night, but most importantly thank you to Cilla and Shanna without whom this event would never have happened.

    I was in the audience for the screening of How To Be and thoroughly enjoyed the movie though what I have to say has not so much to do with the movie but your ‘waxing lyrical’ of Rob.

    I am not going to pick apart this or any other character he has created through the medium of film, however I feel it prudent to voice my opinion of the perfection everyone speaks of with regards to either, he as a person or his roles. It is getting more than a little wearing.

    This is in no way meant to show any disregard to his performances or ability to create however I think someone needs to make a point of this crazily high level of fanaticism that is revolving him of late. It would, in some ways, be nice to read something about him where a constructive criticism was made as opposed to yet another gushing review or comment.

    I do not anticipate this opinion to necessarily go down all that well but I believe it to be a realistic and exigent.

    Kat – thanks for your comments – they are appreciated. I’m far from a screaming fangirl, but this is a fansite hence the fanatacism. We just don’t post negative or critical comments about Rob on this site. We will leave that to the gossip mags.

    Meeting you girls was the best thing for me, in the whole evening :)! Even better than seeing the movie, and I did enjoy the movie very much!

    I hope it is released at least on DVD, as one viewing is certainly not enough, especially for a foreigner like me.
    I’m sure there are a lot of things I did not pick up and I look forward to watching it again, whether in theatres or in the comfort of my home.

    Thank you so very much once again for all your efforts!

    To Kat: no screaming here, for sure. I agree with you. It’s always good to maintain a certain objectivity and making a critique does not mean dissing a person.

    Hi Athena, it was wonderful to finally meet the girl with the most articulate comments in this blog.

    I know your HTB review would be one to be reckoned with, even if I haven’t seen it yet.

    Maybe we can meet again? I was thinking of getting everyone together if LA gets screened, or even New Moon.

    Apologies for the MIA, I’ve been hanging to get back online and send waves to all.

    I can’t thank the organisers enough for putting together such an awesome event. The atmosphere was at a major high throughout and I’m so thrilled, what an absolute treat to have met you ALL.
    Hugs to the surprise that is Athena. 🙂 (sorry hun, can’t help myself)

    Rob delivers the goods and there are many HTB scenes to be loved and re-lived. A highlight for me was the pep-talk to the mirror. Rob showed his ability to take you on this characters journey, to feel it with all it’s weight, then bring [busting at the seems kind of] joy when witnessing the beauty of Art’s acknowledgement of self… I was floored. No wonder Oliver would like to work on another project with Rob, the combination of their efforts shine onscreen.

    Can’t wait for the dvd!

    Yikes, I have so much to catch up on.

    Another get together Cilla? I hope so. 🙂

    Cilla, thanks! Now I’m blushing :D! Truth is that I really love English, as a language, and try to do my best not to butcher it! Hahaha!

    I would love to meet you girls again! Whether for Little Ashes, New Moon or to just hang out, I’m all up for it! 🙂

    Vertigo: rib-cracking hugs back at ya! 😀
