The movie just got screened for the press, did you get any reactions yet?
I did and so far I only got compliments for David Cronenberg on the movie. A lot of people were thrilled to finally discover the movie. I read an article in a daily newspaper that David will be the winner of the ceremony by K.O. It's a phrase that's delightful to hear even if I saw other movies at Cannes that are really good and on a high level. We know that Cosmopolis is a big movie that is extremely contemporary and modern. I told you when we saw each other a few days ago, I recommend everyone to go see it because it has not only a great director and a strong subject but it's also Robert Pattinson and the other actors that give everything they've got, and who act on an amazing level.
A little word about Robert Pattinson, he's attracting all the attention today and he took a lot of risks by working with David Cronenberg. Do you think he succeeded on his big break since Twilight and that he became a credible actor when it comes to cinema?
It's obvious that he's a big start when you see the crowds he draws in on the croisette. He's a huge star but he's incredibly serious, an extraordinary movie fanatic and he's incredibly intelligent compared to the image the media tried to paint him with for a few yers now. He's such a wonderful boy, he's a movie star in the popular cinema for sure but he belongs in the auteur cinema too, in such a natural way. He's an amazing guy! He has looks that help him become an actor but he uses them, put them on a different level. It's all about his spirit, his heart and the emotions he has that talk and express themselves in this movie. He doesn't show off/uses his looks. He's really, really good.Source
