    Hi Maria, I was waiting for you to have a post on High Life so I could link this video. Watch at 13:13 and on, Denis calling ‘Robert’ mimicking his fans. Hilarious!

    Also I LOVE the movie poster with Rob holding baby Scarlett. Her assertive face and the pose with little baby fingers, his face full of gloom and doom, so perfect.

    Sorry! I should stop reproducing your content. 🙂

    Have you seen Denis’s movie Bastards? I am getting ready to see it tonight after dinner.

    That’s no problem re reproducing- it’s always great to see and be reminded of things through fresh eyes . I haven’t seen it so interested to hear what you think

    Eggers in the Esquire interview pleads ignorance when he says this, “Then, four or five years after The Witch, for whatever reason, The Lighthouse was the thing that people wanted to greenlight, so that’s why now!” but he must surely know that it was having Robert Pattinson on board that brought the ‘greenlight’ (Say it, say it out loud, Eggers). You check the film rating now, it has jumped to nearly 90%, because of all the Nolan/Batman fans checking him out. For people who said he didn’t have the male audience after Twilight, he surely does by loads now.

    Thanks for posting that video, PM – for some reason I missed it the first time around, so it was a new treat for me! I love it when that happens. As for baby Scarlett – what a brilliant move it was to put her in the movie with Rob. The perfect combination all round, I’d say.

    I know how hard it is to keep up during promos Sue – and how great is it to see Rob through a new fan.

    So true PM about Eggers not wanting to admit Rob being on board greenlit the project. I can say he had a very minimal male fan base post Twilght – then Good Time happened (and to some extent his role in LCoZ) and now they are screaming about his talent from the rooftops. Even though I’ve had years of condescension supporting Rob in the early days – I’m relieved they took off their blinkers and saw what we knew was right in front of them.

    Sue, it is a very special video clip, isn’t it! If it were a picture, I would frame it. She is a fan herself from everything we have seen. I hope they get to make more movies together.

    Maria, saw Tenet on HBO Max last night. We don’t subscribe to it but stumbled on their free promo here, yay! Need to watch it a couple of times more to put the puzzle together.

    Since I appear to have Maria’s permission to add old videos as new, 😉 allow me to link this one. RP explaining his ‘craft’ and Campos eating up every word of it. Ava DuVernay (Cannes Jury) was tweeting about this video. RP captures exactly the vile and corrupt spirit of evangelical America who are hoodwinking poor and ignorant people. If he can open people’s eyes through art, more power to him.

    I am noticing a trend in the last decade (maybe late to it but anyway). Big ensemble pieces with period pieces, spies, or superhero stuff, complex plot lines and most actors do their part and the audience follows the meatier plots to satisfaction. But RP is different, he brings every character to life, like he does with Teagardin (love how he describes him using the appropriate words such as corporeal and lascivious, shows his literary mind and intellect). And as he explains in that short video, lot of thought is put into it. He is not just a cog in the wheel of a complex plot but he is the character he has chosen, chosen meticulously because it interests and challenges him. I don’t know how many actors can carry non-ensemble pieces like High Life as he does and he does because he puts all his energy into bringing his character to life with nuance and subtlety, not just ‘playing the part’. I also don’t know how many other young actors can carry sparse plot lines like The Rover or The Lighthouse (and to some extent Good Time or Cosmopolis where it all began) like he does.
