CANNES FESTIVAL, Safdie Brothers aim for Palme D’Or with GOOD TIME

New York City breaks bad again
Robert Pattinson and Benny Safdie
Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie

A24, an independent film studio, is like Weinstein or Focus but for the millenial set: their films are possessed of an edge and an immediacy, to say nothing of quality, that isn’t seen very often these days in the film market. "Good Time," which debuted this morning, is the latest title to come out of this studio. In this new film directed by Ben and Josh Safdie about a bank robbery gone wrong ... more >

The Rover

"Mad Max meets 'Of mice and men'
Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson
Directed by David Michôd

In scandal-prone filmdom, not the least is the lackluster career of a great actor, Guy Pearce, though his choice of unclassifiable turns (“Memento,” “Two Brothers,” etc.) may be a factor. Case in point, the strange and strangely moving “The Rover,” where in a desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland, his character, Eric, maybe a former soldier of fortune, farmer or adventurer, and surely a lonely ... more >

CANNES DAY 6 – MAPS TO THE STARS

In competition
This is Cronenberg's second collaboration with Robert Pattinson
Filmed in Canada and New York

While I waited to get into the Debussy theater for the film's 7:30pm screening a journalist told me, ironically, “they’ll shoot another third movie together and that one ... more >

Map to the Stars trailer RELEASED

This is Robert Pattinson's second time being cast in a David Cronenberg movie
In competition

It’s been about two years now since Robert Pattinson slipped his fangs back in and ended his career as a gentleman-vampire. Two years, therefore, since we haven’t heard about him on the cover of magazines, leaving the popular press with a 90% space shortfall to fill with other things between 2008 and 2012. Fans (and they are legion) who’ve been mourning him are now breathing a collective sigh ... more >

Twilight Saga: BREAKING DAWN 2

Since the birth of Renesmee
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
Directed by Bill Condon

There was some hope for “Breaking Dawn Part 2." The end of Part 1 had Bella (Kristen Stewart) getting pregnant with what might be a demon offspring while becoming something of a demon herself when Edward (Robert Pattinson) turns her into a vamp. I expected Stephanie Meyers's so far-overblown book series to finally find some urgency but this may be the worse one yet, because we now know that it was ... more >
