'The Rover' Cinematographer Talks Filming Pearce and Pattinson--"he's a natural" (Video)

13 June 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"The Rover," the Australian dystopian crime drama from director David Michod ("Animal Kingdom") is a fascinating cross between a western and neo-noir. And the pairing of Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson is an intense psychological study of abuser and enabler. For Argentinian cinematographer Natasha Braier ("The Milk of Sorrow," "Xxy"), this is a breakthrough movie. Shot on film in the hot outback, she helps convey a hostile environment where survival has put humanity on hold. "There's something really interesting in this world -- a clear sense of atmosphere and mood," explains Braier, whose 2012 Olympics short, "Swimmer," caught the director's eye. "The purpose of every scene is not always apparent. David and I had a lot of interesting conversations about his whole creative process. Why everything is there and what he wants to say. I tried this game of trying to have David define a scene with a sentence or a paragraph and sometimes he didn't. »
