Robert would still be one of my fave actors if he didnt break it off with fka twigs. I like him with a black girl. 

 

But i will say..its time to remove the twilight hate with hin. He is clearly talented and knows how to play a character really well. Him and kristen even tho i believe kristens acting never really changes per role such as ellen page? Kristen is very wooden while robert is a chameleon.

The Cannes 2019 Superlatives

 

Best Acting Duo

Winners: Noémie Merlant & Adèle Haenel (Portrait of a Lady on Fire), Willem Dafoe & Robert Pattinson (The Lighthouse)

It feels impossible to choose between these two duos, but it’s worth noting that they stuck like a sore thumb in their onscreen chemistry and individual performances. Merlant and Haenel have found a mutual spark so remarkable we will likely be discussing it for decades, if not millennia, to come. Just wait until you lay eyes on their lavish and tender scenes together. And Pattinson and Dafoe are given some of the most difficult performances of each of their careers by writer-director Robert Eggers. Needless to say, they rise to the challenge with bottomless energy that will truly blow your mind.

The 10 Best Movies of Cannes 2019

 

The second feature directed by Robert Eggers (“The Witch”) was greeted at Cannes with such resounding enthusiasm that there was a mini-outcry over why it hadn’t been selected for one of the competition slots. The explanation — if not justification — was simple: The movie felt like too much of a genre film, which doesn’t clear the bar of the Cannes “class” factor. In this case, though, I’d defy anyone to classify the genre. “The Lighthouse” is a gripping and turbulent drama that’s very much its own gothic historical ominoso art-thriller thing. Set in the 1890s, and shot in shimmeringly austere black-and-white, and with a startling old-fashioned 1.19:1 aspect ratio (a nearly perfect square, like that of early sound film), it’s set on a desolate island of jagged rock, where a gnarled old sea dog (Willem Dafoe, declaiming his lines like Captain Ahab on a bender) is tending the lighthouse there while training his new assistant (Robert Pattinson). Are we seeing a tale of survival, a Victorian ghost story, or a study in slow-brewing mutual insanity? How about all of the above? Dafoe and Pattinson, playing these gruff yokels, act out what often feels like the period version of a Sam Shepard two-hander, and they’re fascinating enough to fixate our attention.

THR critics pick the 20 best films of the fest

 

Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson deliver gripping turns as a lighthouse keeper and his junior mate stuck on a Maine island in the 1890s in this accomplished claustrophobic chiller from American up-and-comer Robert Eggers (The Witch). It's a distinctive hallucinatory tale, mixing maritime legend, ancient mythology and supernatural terror.

The 13 best films from Cannes Film Festival 2019

 

1. The Lighthouse

Shot in exquisite, full-frame monochrome – an antiquated aspect ratio that adds to both the squirming claustrophobia and period aesthetics – with a custom orthochromatic filter bringing every pore, blemish and twitch of insanity on the faces of Pattinson and Dafoe to the fore, it’s a paradoxically beautiful film for one filled with such ugliness.

THE 7 BEST FILMS WE SAW AT THE 2019

 

The Lighthouse, which won the Cannes Critics Award, was one of the best-reviewed films of the festival. Those lucky enough to catch a screening have dubbed the story of two men trapped in a 1800s lighthouse a gothic horror masterpiece. Utilizing 1940s camera techniques – it’s shot in black-and-white on 35mm film – the atmospheric thriller could be a dark horse awards contender, and co-stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe are getting early Oscar whispers. The two worked through grueling conditions on the film, something that worked for Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant.
