Robert Pattinson with Claire Denis at the Ebert Tribute Award at TIFF

Rob attended the lunch to celebrate Claire Denis receiving the Ebert Tribute Award at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.  How great is this photo – I could be wrong but that looks like Taika Waititi sitting next to Rob.  Another collab?  Yes please. 

From Roger Ebert.com:

Like Godard, she is uncompromising, unconcerned about holding the hand of the audience member, asking something of the viewer instead of just allowing them to be a passive observer. This is certainly the case with “High Life,” a film that ended up as the #1 of this year’s TIFF for a number of high-profile critics while also containing a number of walk-outs. It feels like that’s how Denis would want it—a movie that challenges viewers means that some viewers won’t be up for the challenge, doesn’t it?
“High Life” is certainly a challenge, starring Robert Pattinson as a space traveler aboard a giant ship headed to the distant reaches of space. We meet Pattinson’s character on a nearly-empty vessel—it’s just him and a baby. How he got here is filled in with flashbacks that include roles played by Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, and Andre Benjamin, but don’t expect any sort of traditional narrative. This is a film that owes a great deal more to Tarkovsky than Nolan, and further proof that Pattinson is one of the most daring actors of his generation, eschewing leading man roles to work with filmmakers like James Gray, the Safdies, and Claire Denis. “High Life” was bought by A24 shortly after its premiere.
