Check out three films with Robert Pattinson that are worth discovering or rediscovering and are available on Netflix.
Attention, strange film! Pioneer tells the story of a pioneer businessman who wanted to marry the woman of his life, Penelope. Accompanied by an old drunkard, he crosses the United States to find her in the border town in which she lives. As a wedding gift? He brings him a miniature horse!
Seeing Robert Pattinson in a comedy is quite rare, but know in advance that he only has a limited screen presence, as the film switches to halfway to show the point of view of his future mate, played by Mia Wasikowska.
Both are twisting, but we regret that the staging is not up to par and cannot find the rhythm to follow what the actors offer on the screen. And yet, without a doubt, this strange western deserves a look.
The Lost City of Z
The true story of Percy Fawcett, a great explorer, who set off for the Amazon in 1906 to map Brazil and Bolivia. There, he finds himself dreaming of finding a missing city. A dream that will quickly turn into an obsession, to the detriment of his personal life.
If Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) plays the hero of this story, Pattinson plays his aide-de-camp, Henry Costin, who will become one of his closest friends. Directed by James Gray (The Yards, The Night Belongs to Us), The Lost City of Z is a solid adventure film, at the same time as a touching and gripping family drama, to be caught up urgently.
The Devil, all the time
Robert Pattinson only has a supporting role in The Devil all the time, but what a role! The story is quite difficult to summarize as it is divided into many characters with very different backgrounds, all spread over fifteen years. In the cast: again Tom Holland and Mia Wasikowska, but also Bill Skarsgård, Haley Bennett, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Riley Keough … for a story of abysmal darkness.
As an example, Robert Pattinson plays a narcissistic pastor obsessed with underage girls and who, once his “prey” of the moment is pregnant, abandons it for another. Despite a rather awkwardly executed American accent, the actor fascinates by the madness he infuses into the character, while playing on his own charisma. A great lesson in play.
