Robert Pattinson “is one of the best actors alive today”

Jan Dabrowski of Film Org (Poland) wrote an article about Robert Pattinson being “one of the best actors alive today” and provides his evidence from his 5 favourite performances – Little Ashes, The King, Good Time, The Lighthouse and The Devil All the Time. Here’s an excerpt of what Jan had to say:

Robert Pattinson is one of the best actors alive today.  If someone snorted at that point, one of two things has happened. Either his consciousness stopped 10 years ago or he avoids Pattinson’s films. For the last 12 years (i.e. from the premiere of the first Twilight), the actor managed to show in all possible ways that he finds himself in very demanding roles, that he can move crowds with facial expressions and voice, that he is a master of accents and characteristic characters. The Youth Vampire Saga is just a few films from his body of work, which currently consists of 39 productions, and Pattinson is currently 34 years old. An impressive result.

It is simply ignorant to consider him “the wooden actor in those vampire movies”. Now Pattinson does not have to prove anything to anyone, and before 40 he made appearances in films that include David CronenbergRobert Eggers and Christopher Nolan. From this he is the new Batman which not only sounds promising, it will probably open up an even wider path to prestigious productions and cooperation with the most appreciated artists. Regardless of how Pattinson’s career unfolds in the future, there is now plenty to choose from. Below are my personal top 5 best performances:

[Little] Ashes

… Pattinson starts out as a shy introvert to become a living lion and a hysterical, and with every acting charge he makes an impression. And he was only 22 at the time. Anyone who mocks him for Twilight should applaud him just as earnestly for Ashes.

[The] King

… The Dauphin mocks the English king at every opportunity, and Pattinson adds another nasty villain with an excellent accent to his achievements. 

Good Time

The only glimpse of good that can be found in it is the bond with the brother he cares about. This feeling, combined with aggression and dissatisfaction with everything else, makes this creation one of the most interesting in Pattinson’s career, which could finally go crazy in a very expressive starring role.

[The] Lighthouse

… It is difficult to recognize him, because his face changed with his speech and behavior, new grimaces and facial expressions appeared. Even during the acting charges and the most touching scenes, Pattinson keeps his character within the convention. This is one of the biggest bricks he has contributed to building his image as a versatile, hard and effective actor who is not afraid of difficult roles or non-obvious, complicated characters.

The Devil All the Time

… And in every single scene, Pattinson is seductively angry. An arrogant pastor with a southern accent is a short but show-off role, and watching this slimy guy make the viewer feel dirty just to watch. This impression is similar to that of Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler: a slippery, nasty type that will lead everyone to a poor end. With the role of Teagardin, Pattinson took another big step in his career towards the well-deserved Oscar.

    So proud to be a long-time fan and to see Rob finally getting the recognition he deserves. When I saw Cosmopolis, I knew he was destined for greatness! And he just keeps getting better. You go, Rob!

    Agree Kathy – I felt the same when I saw Little Ashes for the first time. As for Cosmopolis, I could not get enough of that film at the cinema. It’s a great ride we’ve been on and yes “You go, Rob”!

    I myself have a small site connetcet to yours a little bit – it’s called cronenbergalia.pl and it’s about David Cronenberg, his children, his art and influence on cinema and culture. In this subject Robert Pattinson have a large part because of his involvement in “Cosmopolis” and “Maps to the stars”. Great cooperation, great movies (fun fact: “Cosmopolis” has a motto quoted from a Polish writer and poet Zbigniew Herbert)
