Robert Pattinson had live maggots as makeup on The Lost City of Z

 image host

Nana Fisher, hair and makeup designer for The Lost City of Z, provided wonderful insight into the making of The Lost City of Z to Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild.  Below is the extract relating to Rob:

As Department Head of hair and make-up, I was tasked with ageing the main cast—a trio of handsome and beautiful actors in their 30s. Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller and Robert Pattinson aged into their 50s with grace and without the use of CGI in post production. …

Robert Pattison grew his beard for weeks before shooting, so we had a good length beard to work with. To show the transformation of his journey, his character, Henry Costin’s beard, was darkened for scenes in England and lightened from the sun in the jungle, by reversing the colour and leaving Robert’s natural tone. In climactic jungle scenes, Robert’s character becomes infected by maggots—the wound worsens to an open cut, infected by maggots.

Lois Mcintosh applied Pro Bond pieces and build it up with a 3D around his nostril line and just before camera would roll, we added live maggots. For his older look, grey hair was laid into his beard and temples and latex stipple around his eyes.

Robert Pattinson and his Films Make 2017 Best of Lists “growing more confident in his abilities and potent in his screen presence”

Robert, Good Time and The Lost City of Z are included and/or topping quite a few “Best of 2017” lists, so I thought I would collate so that we can keep track of what’s being said about Rob and/or his films.

FILM COMMENT “Best Films of 2017”

1 Good Time

After spending their early films exulting in freedom from employment, buoying and buoyed by a kind of boho-anarcho amorality, the Safdies made a film dunked in the gasoline of white privilege, and they lit a match” Eric Hynes, “Urban Legends” cover story for July/August 2017 issue

9 The Lost City of Z

“Rather than depict Fawcett’s journey as devolving into a kind of Herzogian madness, Gray and leading man Charlie Hunnam take a matter-of-fact, internalized approach to the character, treating his obsession with the possibly mythical Z a an almost practical means of emotional escape.” Michael Koresky, “The Search” feature and interview from March/April 2017

THE NEW YORKER “The Best Movies of 2017”

3. “Good Time” (Josh and Benny Safdie)

“Good Time,” starring Robert Pattinson, streaks and smears and shreds the screen with a sense of furious subjectivity.

31. “The Lost City of Z” (James Gray)

The story of a search that doesn’t come to fruition, a series of missions that don’t achieve their goals, and that nonetheless reverberate powerfully and enduringly.

Robert Pattinson attends the PGA The Lost City of Z Q&A in LA

image host

As Marc Olsen tweeted late today, he was moderating a Lost City of Z Q&A today with James Gray and Charlie Hunnam.  Rob and Sienna Miller were a late inclusion.  It was held at the Linwood Dunn Theater At Academy’s Pickford Center For Motion Picture Study in LA and I believe Brad Pitt introduced the film.  Stellar day for those who were fortunate enough to attend.

Robert Pattinson talks about upcoming projects, directors and more with IndieWire


Rob sure does like working with “Mia’s”.  Also, I’m probably in the minority but I am still holding out hope for “Idol’s Eye”.  Indiewire spoke to Rob whilst he was at the Savannah Film Festival for the Maverick Award and had some insight from Rob in relation to this upcoming films and collaborations. I noticed he didn’t mention Joanna Hogg, but I’m with Rob about hoping “The Devil All The Time” happens because it’s one of my favourite reads this year – quirky fabulous book:

Clair Denis’ Sci-Fi Project “High Life”: “It’s definitely nuts,” said Pattinson. “I just finished it last week. [Denis] is incredible. I’m not just saying that, she’s like one of the most fascinating people to work for. I was saying to her at the end of the shoot, she’s the most authentic punk that I’ve even met in my life. Just someone who can control a set. She’s so tiny, and to me she’s the most definitive auteur I’ve ever worked with as well. There’s disparate elements of the [‘High Life’] story. It’s just all over the place and I can’t waiting to see how she finds the throughline of everything, because it’s insane.”

The Zellner Brothers’ “Damsel”: “It’s got that same kind of ‘Kumiko [the Treasure Hunter]’ tone. It’s a funny movie I think, well I hope, I haven’t seen the final movie. I thought the script was very funny. It’s a very, very odd – ostensibly a western, but it’s like a feminist western comedy.”

Antonio Campos’ “The Devil All the Time”: “It’s got a really fun part in it. I hope it’s going to happen, I think it will. I love Antonio, I’m sort of friends with him as well and I think Mia Goth [“Cure for Wellness,” “Nymphomaniac”] will be in it, and she’s excited about it as well.”

Olivier Assayas’ heist film “Idol’s Eye”: “Every few months it kind of reappears again, but I think it’s happening with [Sylvester] Stallone, which is cool. I’m still always talking to them and seeing what’s going to happen, but I love Olivier.

Ciro Guerra’s “Waiting For the Barbarians”: “I saw ‘Embrace the Serpent’ that last day it played at the Sunshine in New York and the matinee was packed. I just knew Ciro Guerra’s next film was going to be amazing. I’m going to do ‘Waiting for the Barbarians’ with Mark Rylance.”
