Robert Pattinson, Welcome to Your Rob-naissance

Robert Pattinson was expel in a initial Twilight film when he was 21, and spent a subsequent 4 years fending off teenagers during promotional events in selling malls. Today, Robert Pattinson is 31, and spent his summer, so far, during a receiving finish of a six-minute station acclaim during a Cannes film festival, and receiving a Hollywood Foreign Press Association while presenting during a annual party during a Beverly Wilshire hotel. There, he was glad-handing his approach to, it would seem, an contingent (gasp) Golden Globes assignment for his opening in Good Time, his film entrance out this Friday that has brought about this sudden, near-nostalgic emotional that is fast apropos a Rob-naissance.

It’s not hype: Pattinson is a explanation in Good Time, a Safdie brothers’ breakneck, breathless thriller that never lets up. Taking place over a march of a single, twisty evening, a film feels like a grittier, uglier, contemporary chronicle of Martin Scorsese’s After Hours, usually it’s not a coked-up 80’s amping adult a pace, it’s Pattinson’s manic, crazy eyes, his even crazier choppy, frosty hair, and a greased circle of his demented mind shaping a subsequent move. As a low-level criminal male who robs a bank to save his brother, a film boils down to, basically, Rob Pattinson on a run. It’s stirring to watch—and it has been maybe even some-more fun for critics to write about. There’s zero like an actor fulfilling a intensity once sidelined by a restraint of a teen heartthrob industrial formidable to set Hollywood and a observers’ hearts aflutter (see: Jared Leto).

It’s also a loyal film star performance, one that Pattinson has been shying divided from given Twilight. In films like Maps to a Stars and The Rover, he has subjugated himself to partially quiet, delegate roles, while permitting Julianne Moore and Guy Pearce to gnaw a particular scenery. His glamour seemed to unequivocally trickle by in The Lost City of Z, though even that was a slow-burning opening in support of Charlie Hunnam. Throughout this phase—let’s systematise it as: Rob Pattinson, overqualified impression actor—he’s stranded to a verified regulation of any desirous star (including, it contingency be said, Kristen Stewart) perplexing to shun a jail of teen idolhood: work with interesting, adventurous directors, and let them rinse a film star off we until we resemble an actor again.

In a use of this de-sensitization of Robert Pattinson as we once knew him, filmmakers like David Cronenberg (Maps to a Stars, Cosmopolis), David Michod (The Rover), Werner Herzog (Life), and James Gray (Lost City of Z) have brutalized him physically, done him dumb and witless, worked to un-flatter his looks, and suppressed his attract to a indicate of near-muteness. It took Josh and Benny Safdie, New York filmmakers who have fundamentally done a really Safdiesque New York film, solely that Robert Pattinson happens to be in it (many of a other actors are street-cast), to make him, as this new GQ cover profile hammers home, come alive again.

And a reviews have been irascible (the film now sports a 92 percent “fresh” rating); Pattinson’s opening has been described by critics as possessing “an indeterminate force”; a “shifty intensity”; and as “some of a best work of his post-franchise-journeyman career.”

Whether this acclaimed post-heartthrob star spin bodes a Leo-nian change towards status or a Leto-nian oddball arc stays to be seen, though it appears we’re now on a fork of a Rob-naissance (as stupid as that sounds). Welcome back, Rob Pattinson. You demeanour flattering good, even when you’re slumming it.
