Robert Pattinson debuting his films in Cannes since 2012

Robert Pattinson has had 3 movies premiere at Cannes – Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars in competition, The Rover as midnight special.  Three debuts and he’s about to add one more with Good Time.  Let’s relive one of my favourite interviews of Robert and David Cronenberg from 2012.

 

and how about some reviews | comments.  The Wrap was spot on in 2014 with their prediction.

The Guardian thought that Cosmpolis “is flat-out marvellous, a 21st-century American horror story, haunted by “the glow of cyber-capitalism”. David Cronenberg does an elegant job of converting Don DeLillo’s chilly, mysterious prose to the screen, while the performances have just the right wonky, off-kilter intensity.

While Robbie Collins from The Telegraph UK thought “Robert Pattinson gives a sensationally controlled central performance in David Cronenberg’s film Cosmopolis”

In 2014, the media had this to say:

Variety (2014):

Whoever worried this year’s Cannes Film Festival was short on stars only needed to take a stroll through the Vanity Fair Party on Saturday night at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which looked like the Oscars in May.

….

But the actor with the biggest smile on his face may have been Robert Pattinson, who earned some of his best reviews yet for “The Rover,” the Australian action film directed by David Michod which screened to critics over the weekend. He also had strong buzz going into Monday’s competition debut of “Maps to the Stars,” a drama directed by David Cronenberg.

“He’s incredibly respectful,” Pattinson told Variety, saying he would love to collaborate with Cronenberg again. The two first worked together on 2012′s “Cosmopolis.”

LA Times (2014):

Pattinson, who after the “Twilight” series has been on his share of big Hollywood sets, said he was surprised at some of the naysayers.

“Are people saying it’s mean?” he asked when told of some early reactions, adding, “The child actor part felt very real. Almost every set I’ve been on has had someone like that.”

Asked about his experiences with some of the more narcissistic portrayals, he said, “Well, Hollywood attracts crazy people, and then you add a lot of money, so…” his voice trailing off.

The Wrap (2014):

WINNERS

… Let’s see who will be leaving France with a frown and who will be returning Stateside with a smile. …

Robert Pattinson – While neither David Michod’s “The Rover” nor David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” drew stellar reviews, Pattinson was singled out for his performances, particularly for his work alongside Guy Pearce in “The Rover.” None of Pattinson’s post-”Twilight” movies have found great success or acclaim, but judging from his reviews for these two films, he’s not going anywhere and will have a feature career for years to come — especially if he continues working with directors who push him as a performer.”

    Love this post. Love these movies. Love both directors. Especially love the part they’ve played in Rob’s career. I bet they’re both really thrilled with the direction Rob is taking his career.
