VIDEO: BBC “Robert Pattinson’s Strict Time in a Limo”
Pattinson is interviewed by Tim Masters of the BBC.
Our quick notes on content:
Pattinson talks about how so much of the writing is abstract and not conventional English, and says (like with a poem) sometimes it is just the feeling of saying it and feeling of listening to it (you don’t have to think about the meaning of every line.)
Cronenberg’s directive that there would be no deviating from the script and that most of the film was to be shot in the limo, provided “two solids” which provides a foundation (which one doesn’t always have to work with.)
Rob is asked about the film being seen as “the corruptive power of money…” but he says he doesn’t think the film is about the money, the money is not real to anyone, losing it, gaining it.
He speaks of being out to dinner with a trader, who looked at his blackberry and said, I’ve just lost 8 million pounds. Rob said that’s like “nothing” to him, he just has another drink and moves on.
Rob adds that the world has become this surreal place, and that this is maybe the comment to be made on the movie, that ”Reality has been lost, and when reality is lost something bad inevitably happens.”
He concludes that it is quite a timeless, cyclical story (noting the contemporary link to the current financial crisis.)
