How The Devil All the Time’s Robert Pattinson killed the ghost of Edward Cullen

image host

Here’s another opinion piece. I’ve been blogging about Rob for 12 years and although to Rob’s new fans it may feel like Rob’s having this success overnight – I still remember the non-flattering opinions for Bel-Ami, Cosmopolis and even The Rover. How times have changed, it’s so refreshing to see that others have given him a chance (especially knowing how hard Rob’s been working for the past 10 years) and seeing what we’ve known all along. Here’s an excerpt from Paul Bradshaw’s article for Radio Times:

Pattinson, in fact, only has a small role in the film, but he still feels like the lead thanks to a swaggering performance that out-weirds and out-creeps everyone else around him. A sex-pest southern preacher who wrings everything he can out of his small-town influence, he makes his entrance in a frilly pirate shirt, slickly dipping two fingers into a gravy pot as he smooth talks the church widows with one eye on their granddaughters. Affecting a high-pitched voice and a spidery walk, he seems marginally larger than life – overplaying his part just enough to feel odd without tipping over into parody. In a long film crowded with famous faces and big events, Pattinson is the one thing that stands out.

… Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is about as strait-laced as blockbusters get – a coolly grown-up sci-fi with no room for grandstanding – but Pattinson still managed to play the film’s background time-cop as a raffish gentleman sidekick that he modelled on English intellectual Christopher Hitchens. John David Washington might get the film’s Bond role, but it’s Pattinson who gets most of the wit and charm, pushing his affectations to the limit again in another performance that seems to be deliberately different from everything else he’s ever done.

Last year saw him overplay The Duke Of Guyenne (complete with panto pantaloons and a thick French accent) in The King, and underplay Ephraim Winslow opposite Willem Dafoe in gothic arthouse horror The Lighthouse. Throw his menacing Reverend Preston Teagardin into the mix from The Devil All The Time and it’s hard to paint a picture of who Pattinson even is – an ever-changing coatrack of characters in different, difficult films that he plays with fierce sensitivity and curious oddness.

The Best Robert Pattinson Is Weird Robert Pattinson

image host

The Ringer believe that some of Rob’s best work is when he plays a secondary character, and here’s why:

The Devil All the Time is uncompromisingly bleak stuff … and that mood is matched in the ensemble’s somber performances.

But Pattinson proves to be the exception to that rule. As a predatory preacher in small-town Ohio, the actor seems to relish the chance to play a preening snake oil salesman—the kind of person who sees faith as the best means of manipulation and coercion. The phoniness of the preacher’s behavior is matched only by Pattinson’s hilariously over-the-top Southern accent and sacrilegiously poofy dress shirt. I’m not sure whether he deserves an Oscar or a Razzie; perhaps both.

The sheer campiness of Pattinson’s performance runs counter to everything else in The Devil All the Time—it’s the equivalent of a player ignoring a coach’s set play to do whatever the fuck he wants. But the effect of Pattinson’s work here is almost contagious: I couldn’t get enough of it, and suddenly I understood why all those parishioners couldn’t see through the preacher’s obvious facade. They were simply too beguiled to care.

The Devil All the Time is not the first instance of Pattinson appearing in a Netflix production where it appears he got a totally different memo from everyone else on set. In David Michod’s ultimately underwhelming The King, which was supposed to be another star-making turn for Timothée Chalamet, it’s Pattinson’s supporting work as the Dauphin of France that steals the show from his costar. Sporting Prince Charming–like blond locks and a French accent so thick and egregious it sounds like he’s constantly choking on a mouthful of escargot, Pattinson almost single-handedly saves The King—one ridiculous line reading at a time. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Robert Pattinson with Pepé Le Pew’s voice call Bowl Cut Timmy Chalamet someone who has, and I quote, “giant balls with a tiny cock.”

But just as well as Pattinson can call attention to himself, he can disappear into a role that requires something a bit more understated. In yet another supporting turn for James Gray’s masterful The Lost City of Z, Pattinson plays the aide-de-camp Henry Costin to Charlie Hunnam’s fabled real-life British explorer Percy Fawcett, who obsessed over finding an ancient lost city in the Amazon. Hiding behind a scraggly beard and old-timey spectacles, Pattinson is virtually unrecognizable, but carries a rugged grace while constantly following Fawcett through ordeals in the jungle that most would consider a living nightmare. It’s only when Costin starts a family of his own that he refuses to keep searching for Z with Fawcett, a choice Pattinson conveys with quiet consternation. 

It’s within this arthouse space, and in taking on bizarre supporting roles that appear antithetical to the interests of someone who has the look of a prototypical movie star, that Pattinson continues to impress. Call it the Jake Gyllenhaal Principle: He might be good-looking, but Robert Pattinson never seems more content than when he can get his freak on.

Despite his taking on one of the most sought-after superhero roles in Hollywood—not to mention starring in a time-bending Christopher Nolan movie—I hope filmmakers continue to let Pattinson cook as a weird character actor trapped in a leading man’s body. (While I haven’t seen Tenet because I care about my well-being, the fact that he plays a character who stole Nolan’s haircut is promising.) He’s sneakily become perhaps the single most exciting actor working right now; someone whose body of work radiates true chaotic energy. There’s no reason Robert Pattinson’s post-Twilight career can’t continue to sparkle, like a horny vampire in the sun.

Screen Rant wants to know which Robert Pattinson Character are you based on your Zodiac Sign

imgbox

Screen Rant has put together a post detailing what Rob character you might be according to your zodiac sign. Being a Leo, I’m apparently The Dauphin- which sounds about right:

At the dawn of his fame, Robert Pattinson was a heartthrob synonymous with his squealing teen fan base. The Twilight star embodied the mysterious bad boy persona as emotional vampire Edward Cullen from 2008 through 2012. Cut to the current day, and it is suddenly cinephiles and DC fanboys drooling over the actor, set to star in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Tenet and later the inevitably-titillating The Batman.

Such an inflection point is the opportune time to look back on a filmography through the lens of the Zodiac. In which of his roles did Robert Pattinson most effectively bring to life which astrological signs? As one of the most exciting movie stars of the past decade, there is not a film not worth watching based on your alignment.

Leo – The Dauphin

Netflix‘s Shakespeare adaptation The King was released last year to mixed reviews, but, if for this Robert Pattinson performance alone (only some ten minutes of screen time), it is worth checking out. As The Dauphin of France’s kingdom, Pattinson is over-the-top ridiculous, menacingly making fun of Timothée Chalamet’s King Henry V’s you-know-what and owning the French accent.

Prideful and unshy with cruelty based in honesty, this Dauphin incarnation must have been born under the Leo sign. Important to remember is that the wretched character would be a beloved one, were the story told from a French perspective.”
