We don’t need to tell you that Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular and influential Hollywood stars. After all, he’s been entertaining us for years now on the big screen. In 2019 alone, he appeared in four different films, including Black Snow, The Photograph, Beautiful Boy, and more.
Since his breakthrough role in the indie film Good Time, Robert Pattinson has been setting the film industry on fire, racking up awards season after awards season. This year, he’s been nominated for an Oscar, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe. Needless to say, 2019 was a banner year for the 32-year-old star.
With all the success and accolades this year, it’s no surprise that fans have been eagerly awaiting the premiere of Pattinson’s upcoming film, Sexiest. The premiere is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited. In this article, we’re going to explore the best of the best – some of the most stunning and revealing scenes from Pattinson’s filmography. We’ll begin with a scene from Good Time, followed by a look at some of his more recent work.
If there’s one scene that really encapsulates the spirit of Good Time, it’s the one where Pattinson’s character Gene watches a porno with his girlfriend, played by Elle Fanning. It’s a sweet, romantic scene that sees them sitting in bed, with their laptops open and screen shots of naked women frolicking around them. It’s the perfect example of what makes this indie film so special: the way it tackles an age-old issue – loneliness in the digital era – in a humorous yet heartwarming manner. For fans of Pattinson, it’s a bittersweet moment when he finally shuts off his laptop and climbs into bed with his loved one. Even though the story follows a young man coming of age in the digital era, it still feels relatable, and that’s because of the two leads’ on-screen chemistry.
The Lost City
The Lost City is widely considered to be one of the greatest films of all time. Directed by Werner Herzog and based on the eponymous novel by Jack London, it’s a dark, epic thriller that blurs the lines between reality and fiction, as well as myth and modern day. The film won the Palme D’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe Award.
It’s difficult to discuss The Lost City without talking about the iconic tiger rug that serves as the centerpiece of the film’s visually stunning setting. In fact, Herzog even said he considered it the greatest rug he’d ever seen. It was hand-knotted by a Palestinian weaver and takes up an entire room. For anyone lucky enough to see the film on the big screen, it’s a must-see experience. One of the most fascinating aspects of this cinematic masterpiece is the way it weaves the present into the tapestry of myth and legend.
The Place Beyond The Pines
Another great title to add to the list is The Place Beyond The Pines, the 2015 crime thriller directed by Derek Cianfrance. Based on the real-life story of Richard Pike, an American who relocated to France to escape the law, The Place Beyond The Pines examines the way society and the media – in particular the press – can be instruments of injustice. In the film, Richard (played by Robert Pattinson) is a celebrity chef who turns to cooking to ease his sense of alienation. The movie follows his attempts to seek fame and fortune, while battling drug addiction. The film won the Grand Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for multiple awards, including an Oscar, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe.
What makes The Place Beyond The Pines so special is how it handles substance abuse in a realistic yet engaging fashion. It doesn’t shy away from depicting the dark side of the culinary industry or the glamorous lifestyle of a celebrity chef. Instead, the film shows us a side of Richard that many people didn’t see – the struggling, broken, and defeated character who hides a secret past. This is evident in the way the press treats him – sometimes with sympathy, other times with disdain. What the press doesn’t know is that Richard is harboring a dark secret: he’s keeping a teenage girl prisoner in his house. It’s an act of mercy to let her go, but it’s also one that will land him in great trouble. It’s a tense episode that pits celebrity chef against the paparazzi, as well as prison time.
While we’re on the subject of film noir, let’s not forget about The Eclipse. Directed by Ridley Scott and released in 2015, this darkly comic crime thriller is another example of how great films can emerge when directors and screenwriters delve into the genre. The story follows a Los Angeles detective (Christian Bale) who investigates a string of murders that seem to have a pattern – the victims are all eclipsing lights. It’s a bold and stylish film that refuses to be pigeonholed as just another cliche noir. With its blend of science fiction and crime thriller tropes, The Eclipse is the perfect example of what happens when filmmakers set out to reinvent a classic genre.
The Lost Legends
Another amazing title to check out is The Lost Legends. This Netflix original series is a collection of five mini-episodes that explore the mythology and legendary creatures of Greek mythology. It’s visually stunning and serves as a great introduction to classical mythology for anyone who has never truly explored the subject matter before. While the title may imply that these are lost episodes from a forgotten series, it’s actually the opposite. Netflix has been trying to acquire the rights to make a proper series for years, but it took this mini-series to finally give them the green light. It’s an exciting time for Netflix, as they prepare to launch their own original series. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.
What It Means To Be A Man
There’s also the 2017 documentary What It Means To Be A Man, which explores the changing role of men in today’s world. It’s an important topic that hasn’t been covered in great detail, and it’s essential that more people get involved in the conversation. Even more so in light of the recent #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. What It Means To Be A Man doesn’t shy away from addressing head-on the issues that men have been marginalized for too long. It’s a great opportunity for men to come together and support each other, not just as humans, but as equals.
Finally, let’s not forget about the Twilight Saga. The Twilight books and films have been around for more than a century, and they’ve never been more popular than they are now. When they first came out, it was mostly driven by fans of author Stephenie Meyer; however, in recent years, it’s become an all-time favorite for adults and children alike. One of the reasons behind the recent Twilight zeitgeist is the way that Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) and his family are the ultimate representation of masculinity. While other characters in the series can be seen as independent and feisty, it’s often the men of the family that we, as the audience, relate to most strongly. The way that Edward stands out against the rest of his clan is a testament to his strength and resolve. He’s not just a good mate – he’s a great father figure too.
This list is far from complete, but these are some fantastic titles that you should definitely check out. As we mentioned earlier, since the beginning of this year, Robert Pattinson has been in four different films, putting in some incredible work. If those four films are any indication of future projects, then we’re in for a treat. With each new role, Pattinson further establishes himself as one of the greatest actors of our time. It’s an amazing feat that he’s been able to keep up this level of output and performence while still maintaining his private life. It’s certainly been a banner year for the 32-year-old star.
