Eye For Film: Brady Corbet on making audiences think, Christianity and Robert Pattinson and the culture of celebrity

Eye For Film: Brady Corbet on making audiences think, Christianity and Robert Pattinson and the culture of celebrity | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it
Excerpt:
"Given that he feels so strongly about the mythology of fan culture, it's ironic that he has cast Pattinson in the film, as the actor has built up an ardent following in the years since the Twilight films, with a large number of fan sites dedicated to his work ...
Corbet says he was interesting in using certain expectations to his advantage. "It’s really bizarre," says Corbet
"There’s a couple of things. First of all, I’m not that connected to the notion of Rob as a celebrity, because I’ve known him for a long time and I didn’t discover him that way. The other thing is that I thought it would be really, really interesting to have this sort of Janet Leigh in Psycho effect, where you have someone who is a public figure and people have their eye on him, he’s interesting, he’s charismatic, he’s compelling, he’s handsome. And I thought, that it would really give weight to the first 20 minutes of the film. So I hired him for all of those reasons. I hired him because the role was written for a young man that was a bit younger than the female character, handsome and English, so I thought of him. "Anyone who has spent any time with the guy will know that he’s super hard-working and he never complains...."

Brady Corbet & Mona Fastvold On Robert Pattinson in 'The Childhood of a Leader'

Brady Corbet & Mona Fastvold On Robert Pattinson in 'The Childhood of a Leader' | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

This Brady Corbet and Mona Fastvold interview with Writers Guild Italia  where they say great things about Robert Pattinson. 

The Childhood of a Leader is a 2015 historical mystery drama film, written, produced and directed by Brady Corbet, and is Corbet's feature film directorial debut. Corbet co-wrote the screenplay with his wife Mona Fastvold.

Several excerpts of interview about Rob:

Q: And with an actor as Robert Pattinson? I know he really looks forward films that are auteur films, that offer something else out of the mainstream.
Brady: Yes for sure, he is a real cinephile. There is so many actors that could use their celebrity in a really amazing way, like Will Smith or Tom Cruise… <..>. There’s a lot of people who really don’t take advantages… Like I can get somebody’s film made and they are gonna challenge me and we are gonna grow together.
Q: Did he help in financing? 
Brady: Of course. The thing is funny because at the time… he was cast several years ago, we had no idea how significant it would end up being. We had a lot of others fancy cast members at one point, but at a certain point he was the only way to get the film made, after many years was to have Rob involved. And we originally hired Rob because of the fact we wanted somebody really charismatic and really recognisable.
Mona: We wanted to feel right the way that this character is very important.
Brady: The thing great about Robert is that the less he does. You can't take your eyes off the guy! Because he is beautiful to look at, It's really like he draws you in, in a classic cold way. He is compelling.

The Childhood of a Leader: Robert Pattinson & Brady Corbet Interview With 'The Sunday Times'

The Childhood of a Leader: Robert Pattinson & Brady Corbet Interview With 'The Sunday Times' | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

The oddest thing about Robert Pattinson’s new film is, well, it’s all odd. From a tilt of the camera that barely shows the actors, to a story about fascism that you need to work really hard at even to know it’s about fascism, it is an understatement to say that The Childhood of a Leader is so far removed from its star’s huge vampire breakthrough, Twilight, that it will share absolutely none of the same fans.

"It was important for Brady to choose someone for the role whose presence shines thru scenes even where he is absent. What Rob did was smart, subtle, and substantial. He is a fantastic actor and I admire most of Rob’s film choices. He is definitely someone to keep an eye out for and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him one day on the other side of the camera. He is sensitive, passionate and has great taste so I’m looking forward to seeing what he could create..."

First Reviews from Twitter:

CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER Kubrick/Visconti mash w/ gravy. Twisted family dynamics & parallel history. Or something. Accomplished. #SydFilmFest (Source: https://twitter.com/jdrrr/status/742666599941865472)

Best score I've heard in ages #thechildhoodofaleader #sydfilmfest great performance from #RobertPattinson could have used more screen time (Source:https://twitter.com/GlenFalkenstein/status/742663284311003137)

THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER was a complete surprise. What a strange, interesting beast. Stylised, precision film making. I dug it #SydFilmFest (Source: https://twitter.com/Sam_McCosh/status/742662929871306752)

THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER is the best film of the fest so far. Fark that score #sydfilmfest (Source: https://twitter.com/BradMariano/status/742660566934683648)

THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER was a very strange delight. Narratively sparse, all tone and mood. Much to unpack. #SydFilmFest (https://twitter.com/filmvisuality/status/742661592261660676)

Variety: Director Brady Corbet Talks About His Hopes For ‘The Childhood Of A Leader’ & MORE

Variety: Director Brady Corbet Talks About  His Hopes For ‘The Childhood Of A Leader’ & MORE | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Variety: How would you describe your film, “The Childhood of a Leader”?

Brady Corbet: The film is a chronicle of the childhood experiences of a megalomaniac at the end of the first world war. We were not too interested in pointing at specific instances of cause and effect, however, so the film strings together a series of episodes that evoke the possibility of causality but is designed to leave viewers to identify their own prompting factors.

Variety: How did Robert Pattinson get involved?

Corbet: Robert Pattinson is a friend of ours, and we really have a lot of common interests and tastes. He’s really charismatic, and we thought it would be wonderful to apply that charisma to these very early, seemingly unimportant sequences, and only really by the end of the film do you realise how significant they are.

Robert Pattinson about working with Nicole Kidman:

"Nicole is quite different from what we imagine about her. I did not quite know what to expect from her, but she’s hilarious and pretty wild. This is one as odd because she always looks so elegant and tidy, but in reality it is very fun and much more daring than you would believe. She’s really cool."
