Claire Denis talks Robert Pattinson

image host

Claire Denis presented a three-hour masterclass last Wednesday (29 April 2020) as part of the Vision du Réel film festival. The festival also honored her with the “Maître du Réel” and Claire was happy to provide some insights into her career where she mentioned both Rob and Juliette Binoche. The masterclass will be made available with English subtitles at the festivals site. But for now, here are two takes on what drew Claire to Rob:

From Variety:

There’s something hidden in him. I think that’s why he’s so strong. He’s not at all naturalistic — he has this plastic beauty behind which hides something mysterious. That’s very powerful in cinema.

From Cinecetta News (Italy)

The question of reality also manifests itself in your relationship with the actors, like when you talk about Robert Pattinson , which you directed in High Life : “I saw it in Twilight and Cosmopolis , and it struck me because it has a hidden side, which is also seen in Good Time . He is not a naturalist actor, there is always something under it, and that is why it works in all those films “.

Throwing back to this post we shared in December 2016. Rob at Comic-Con for Twilight on 24 July 2008.


I love searching through my files for golden oldies.  It just felt like the right time to have a look at these beauties again.

Robert Pattinson King of Clickbait calls Twilight AN “Arthouse movie”.

imgbox

Nicholas Barber of BBC Culture spoke with Rob about his career on the eve of The Lighthouse being released in the UK. Below is an extract, but you can read the full interview by clicking on the link above:

“I literally started this year with no job,” he says, referring to 2019. “I remember my agent saying, ‘You’re not really on anybody’s list. The movies are well reviewed, but they aren’t big hits.’ And then a week later I got another call out of the blue: ‘Do you want to be in a Chris Nolan movie?’ I was like: ‘Wait – how did that happen?

As well as featuring in Christopher Nolan’s time-twisting thriller, Tenet, which is released in July, Pattinson is squeezing into the bat suit vacated by Ben Affleck to star in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. But he maintains that he is not plunging into the Hollywood mainstream. Nolan, he argues, is an indie auteur who just happens to have colossal budgets at his disposal, and Batman is one of the “crazy and perverse” characters he usually plays. “Out of all the big roles that I knew of in that kind of realm,” he muses, “there was just something about this one.”

Maybe Pattinson can teach us all a lesson about having the courage of our convictions. By sticking to his own niche taste in films, he gets to be one of the saviours of arthouse cinema – and yet he gets to flirt with blockbusters and be the saviour of Gotham City, too. Who else has a career like his? The only actor who springs to mind, strangely enough, is Pattinson’s Twilight co-star and ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. He grins so widely at this comparison that his eyes crinkle up and disappear. “That’s because no one realised that Twilight was an arthouse movie. It’s part of the same thing. In a few years, people will suddenly realise – ah, it was arthouse! I totally missed it!”

Barbaros Tapan recently spoke to Robert Pattinson about his career

Barbaros Tapan recently spoke to Rob about his career including how he chooses films, working with Robert Eggers and the currently filming “The Batman” . Below are extracts from the interview, which you can read in full HERE

Acting is one of the world’s two largest series; You started by starring in “Harry Potter” and “Twilight.” Before “Batman,” you preferred to do independent work. I would like to ask you about this transition…

The first thing I did were studio movies with a budget of $200 million. I didn’t have an audience concern. But I also like to make movies with risk. If you made the movie thinking that only others would like it, or if you said, “The audience will surely like it, but I didn’t like it,” you’ve chosen the wrong story. The films I made were the one that appealed to me. The same goes now. It doesn’t matter if the film is serial, independent or big-budget.

You’ve acted in “High Life”, “The King”, and “The Lighthouse”… Now you’re shooting “Batman.” Four or five more jobs are on the way out of “Batman.” How would you look at your acting journey that started with “Harry Potter” and tell us about your own progress?

It happened slowly. The most important thing I learned was to love my work more and more, to become more and more connected to my work in every project. When I did “Harry Potter,” I didn’t know how I’d feel about it almost 15 years ago. Every job I do still excites me, solving problems, new places… Trying different techniques in each film, trying to understand… I love every aspect of my job. But if I get back to the problem, I think my learning process has been gradual. Another way of developing is to watch a lot of movies.

About The Batman

Are you going to talk about “Batman?

My speech is absolutely forbidden.

Will Batman meet the Joker? A little hint …

Warner Bros has warned me to keep my mouth shut. I can’t say anything.

Christian Bale, who played Batman before, said to you, “Let him create his own Batman, not be influenced by anyone.” What do you say about his advice?

His interpretation of Batman was incredible. Everyone loved Christian’s Batman. I have ideas for my own Batman. Let’s see how it comes to life

Robert Pattinson Discusses his Career with Mark Malkin

imgbox

Rob spoke with Marc about The Lighthouse, Twilight, The Batman and his love of Little Richard *who knew*. Am just wondering if this story is like the clown car …. From Variety:

On this week’s episode of “The Big Ticket,” Variety and iHeartRadio’s movie podcast, Pattinson tells me he was 19 years old when he was fired from a theater job just days before the show was set to open.
“I left and I was very self-pitying,” Pattinson said. “I walked out and I went to this pub by the river and got absolutely trashed, and then saw that Little Richard was playing in the South Bank in London. I went to a Little Richard concert afterwards, just wept the whole time. I was like, ‘This is the most amazing, amazing concert I’ve ever seen.’”

Turns out that Pattinson is such a big fan of Little Richard that he waited by the stage door for an hour and a half to get his autograph. “He’s great,” Pattinson said. “I love Little Richard. My talent contest in school when I was probably 14, everyone was getting up to do their thing and I played ‘Lucille.’ I played the piano so hard there was just blood all over the keys afterwards. … The next kid had to go and play the piano drenched in blood.”

Next up for Pattinson is “The Batman.” “I’m glad I’ve had quite a lot of time,” he said. “I didn’t realize there were so many Batman comics. Hundreds and thousands. But I’ve been reading a lot of those, and not really just the kind of classics. I just like reading the sort of individual periodicals. It’s nice to kind of see the absolutely contemporary ones.”
