Great quality videos from the Q&A that took place on June 1st.
The limo in which travels the powerful trader (played by Robert Pattinson), on an apocalyptic morning in New York, – where he sees from time to time the world he thought he possessed, slipping through his fingers – felt for a long time like a coffin for the actor, who though he would never get out of.
“Cronenberg disguised me with sunglasses. You have no idea how unsettling it is for an actor to be deprived of their eyes. Then the limo became the center of the film, where all the actors would appear in, one by one. Like Juliette Binoche, for example, who I never thought I would meet one day. That is when, I finally felt liked I existed. It might have been the first time.”
When he auditioned for The Rover, the next David Michod (the Austrlian director of Animal Kingdom, one of the most remarkable police movie of the decade): “I waited for seven hours, but I made it. They chose me and it’s going to be a great movie.” When he said that, he held his head high with the pride of someone who landed the role using his teeth, aware that nothing will be offered to him on a plate.
Robert talks about whether he chose to do Cosmopolis in order to avoid Twilight typecasting, how Ryan Gosling’s career helped him understand his own situation, what it feels like to be somewhat isolated as a celebrity, arguing with Adele about ambition, his plans post-Twilight, his feelings about Heath Ledger’s work in ‘The Dark Knight’, and where he’d like to see Hollywood go.
The show airs tomorrow night, Thursday, June 7, at 11:05 pm on CBC television. It’s a Cosmopolis special, also featuring interviews with director David Cronenberg and fellow actors Paul Giamatti and Sarah Gadon.
Imagine, if you will, a movie that takes place almost entirely in a stretch limousine, with the cameras trained directly on the main character. This is David Cronenberg‘s latest film, Cosmopolis, and if you didn’t know already, it stars Twilight alumnusRobert Pattinson in the lead role.
At times dark, at times light(er), but all the time serious, Cosmopolis is a cerebral, dialogue-heavy take on Don DeLillo’s book of the same name. With the limo serving as his corporate office, Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a youthful entrepreneur with money to burn and a desire for something more. For most of the film, Pattinson meets-and-greets with people in his limo/office — it’s a series of bizarre vignettes, with his daily visit from his doctor as one of the highlights.
Cosmopolis is a look inside a brilliant mind, but also a voyeuristic insight into what it might be like to lose it all. We’ve put together a bunch of things you need to know about the movie, just in case you were expecting something else entirely.
