Berlin Film Festival: LIFE reviews   Leave a comment

Here are some reviews from the ‘LIFE’ Press Screening

Little White Lies

Robert Pattinson impresses in this stylish drama about the relationship between celebrity and the media.

An intense mob formed around the Berlinale press screening of Anton Corbijn’s Life — such is the continued allure of Robert Pattinson. His fans beyond the festival will be pleased to hear that his brittle performance as LIFE magazine photographer, Dennis Stock, outshines Dane DeHaan’s over-baked rendering of James Dean, although the latter is poignant enough to enliven this tale of men helping each other to take a leap into greatness.

[…]

Pattinson’s performance is as crisp as the white shirt and black suits his character always wears. This is acamouflage for his own problems that slowly unfurl, adding colour and improving the film.

[…]

Pattinson steps up, allowing more of his character’s insides to come out. As Life proceeds the pace picks up and by the third act, it is a compelling dramatisation of an artistically fascinating alliance.

New Robert Pattinson interview with NWZ Online   Leave a comment

PATTINSONLIFEC14MS664 (126)

Imitation of James Dean.
Robert Pattinson is present at this year´s Berlinale with not one, but two movies. In one of them he plays the photographer of James Dean. In our interview the former vampire-star tells how he used to perceive the Hollywood legend.
Berlin. At the luxurious Hotel de Rome in the heart of Berlin, hidden away in a parlor behind the lobby, Robert Pattinson gives interviews for his Berlinale-movie “Life” on Monday. Full beard, tousled hair, on the table in front of him a bottle of Coke. Before we get started on the first question, the 28 year-old quickly pops a stick of gum into his mouth.
In Anton Corbijn`s “Life” Pattinson plays the young photographer Dennis Stock, who discovered James Dean before he had his big break-through in Hollywood. Stock snapped the famous picture of James Dean walking down rainy Times Square in New York with a cigarette between his lips and a popped-up collar. In this interview with German press agency dpa Pattinson talks about his own James Dean-phase and his heartthrob-image.
Q: James Dean is one oft the big icons of our time. What is your image of him? 
 
RP: I think every actor at some point goes through a James Dean-obsession. When I was 16, 17 years old you were practically always imitating James Dean, no matter what the role was… I think James Dean liked people looking at him. But there are other actors who don´t exactly know why they became actors (laughs). I think I´m rather one of those.
Q: What did you do when you imitated Dean? 
 
RP: It´s mostly about body language. For example, something like this (he props his elbow on his thigh and briefly rests his head on his hand). Whoever saw me pretending to be James Dean probably wondered what I was doing!
Q: Since the end of the Twilight Saga you´ve worked with directors like David Cronenberg, Werner Herzog and now Anton Corbijn. Do you think of Twilight as a door-opener for new projects or is it more like a curse because it gave you the image of a heartthrob? 
 
RP: It really only ever brought good things for me. Everybody has to deal with something. There´s something positive about people accusing you of being type-cast; it helps you to try and be casted for different things. It energizes you, in a way. It´s fun to refute such an image.

New Robert Pattinson interview with rbb online ‘I’m exactly where I wanted to be’   1 comment

berlin

I´m exactly where I wanted to be.

Even after two Cronenberg-movies many still doubt the acting skills of Twilight-star Robert Pattinson. On Monday he presents his latest movie “Life” at Berlinale – together with director Anton Corbijn. In this interview the former vampire-star explains how he connected with the movie and why he feels his career is in a good place.

Q: Mr. Pattinson, is James Dean still an icon to your generation? 

RP: Definitely. Especially when I was young. I knew James Dean before I even knew I wanted to act. I had read many of his interviews. He was style-defining and has an influence on every actor, simply through his physicality. Anyone who´s leaning forward, trying to look cool, is copying James Dean, really (laughs)

Q: You playing a photographer has a certain irony since in real life you often clashed with photographers who sometimes made your life hell. What was it like, playing a photographer?

RP: They´re still doing it. But to be honest, I had a very preconceived notion of photographers. Just like Anton Corbijn. Our ideas couldn´t have been more different. For Anton, the whole movie is about the nature of the photographer. I didn´t see Dennis Stock as a photographer, but someone, who under all circumstances wanted to be an artist. He saw an artist in James Dean just like he saw himself as an artist. To me the movie is about those petty jealousies: why is Dean perceived an artist and not me. That´s what I liked about it.

Interview – Martin Koolhoven: A movie like Brimstone doesn’t exist yet (translation)   1 comment

Interview-Koolhoven-Brimstone-set-Oorlogswinter-3

Even though the interview doesn’t mention Robert Pattinson, it’s still an interesting read with the director’s ideas about the movie and loads of background info. (Translation by us – please credit)

Next spring Martin Koolhoven  – finally – begins with the shooting of his highly anticipated new film Brimstone. The 45-year-old Dutchman wrote the script for the “violent and epic thriller” himself and managed to get Hollywood stars Mia Wasikowska and Guy Pearce for the main roles. Filmpjekijken.com invited Koolhoven to a lunch with the hope to get some more news about his international debut. That worked.
