Cosmopolis Review by Le Nouvel Observateur   1 comment

Le Nouvel Observateur reviewed Cosmopolis and gave it 4 out of 5 stars! The bullet points below are from the Google translation (ommmmmmmmmmm) but the links to the French articles are below.

  • The film received 4 out of 5 stars noted on Allocine HERE.
  • [Cosmopolis] is puzzling, annoying, surprising, exciting.
  • [Cronenberg] has fun mix of violence and humor, science fiction and gives rise to sorrow, the careless and tragedy.
  • [Pattinson] is perfect: annoying, arrogant, talkative and charming.
  • Robert Pattinson has merit. And charm. Adding that the car is pleasant, with soft lighting and bar in digital gadgets.
  • [Cronenberg’s] film is like no other, is a signature elegance, its willingness to move away from Hollywood is constant.
  • Cosmopolis is the lament of the crisis.
  • David Cronenberg has always loved the mix of genre cinema and philosophy.
  • Two worlds collide: the smooth surfaces, brushed steel, glass, lacquer, and the disorder, old furniture, dirty shirts, peeling walls. That, ultimately, that the hero will see his sad destiny tie. The discomfort, although this is the keyword of Cronenberg film.

You can find the original articles HERE for the the Cosmopolis review and HERE for the Robert Pattinson portion of the review. There is also a summary of the review but it contains a major spoiler if you haven’t read the book. Click HERE for the French version.

*SCAN* Robert Pattinson interview in Vanity Fair Italy   4 comments

Here’s a short snippet from the interview that will be published in the Vanity Fair Italy. The full interview will appear in n. 30 of Vanity Fair which hits newsstands on May 23.

better translation of the Q&A thanks to herm-weasley at pattinsonlife)

He likes to think of as cynical as the character he plays in Cosmopolis, his new film in competition at Cannes, “but the reality is that they are naive.” But the rest has clear ideas

Men in suits, bodyguard in mirrored sunglasses and earphones. The sky above Mahhattan is a gray and, during the two hours of Cosmopolis, will turn increasingly to black.
Eric Packer, golden boy of finance, enter into a limo and its driver, face sculpted by man of the Russian intelligence services, informs him that traffic was paralyzed for the visit of President of the United States. But he is not interested now just needs a good haircut, and the only barber in a position to satisfy the other side of town. (…)

Transpose into a Hollywood movie one of the most visionary novels of Don DeLillo – written in 2001, is a prophecy of Occupy Wall Street and everything that we are living – was an impossible task that only a director like David Cronenberg’s brave could succeed. And just as brave as a director David Cronenberg was reminded of entrusting the starring Robert Pattinson.

It is true that Pattinson is not only Twilight, the saga will end November 14 with
Breaking Dawn – Part 2: between one episode and others, has also starred in Remember Me (2010), Water for Elephants (2011) and the recent Bel Ami. But it is clear that a character like this can do for him the difference between staying anchored to the fangs of the vampire Edward Cullen and be admitted into the club of actors to Serie A.

In Cosmopolis – premiering at Cannes – Pattinson keeps the pallor that made fall in love all over the world, girls and boys grew up, the romantic air of Edward, however, has disappeared. (…)

Do you have any idea why David Cronenberg chose you?
I don’t, to be honest. But I never wondered why, I’m just happy he did.

In “Cosmopolis” there are sex scenes which are quite explicit: weren’t you embarrassed?
I was more nervous for the actresses. When a man takes off his clothes he may feel stupid, but in the end he enjoys himself. I think it’s different for a woman, more problematic.

In real life, are you more sweet or passionate?
Passionate, I hope.

One of your best friends, British actor Tom Sturridge, is having a baby with Sienna Miller. Would you like to become a father?
Sure. Not right now, but yes, of course.

Have you made any plans with Kristen yet?
Not yet. We haven’t planned anything.

Do you feel ready to move in with her?
[sings to hide the embarrassment] I’m ready for everything.
