Robert Pattinson’s Remember Me Briefly Mentioned for Media Impact with 9/11 via @PattinsonStew
This is a little more somber article than usual, but it can’t be avoided as we are quickly approaching the 10-year anniversary of the tragedy that was 9/11. This article from The New York Post briefly mentions Remember Me as one of the movies of our time utilizing this tender subject as part of their plot-lines. But they don’t stop there, besides movies, they also cover television and books, as well.
It’s a very interesting article, so check it out:
Ten years on, pop culture is still asking itself the most basic questions about how to approach the attacks of Sept. 11. Is the proper tone direct (Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center,” Paul Greengrass’ “United 93”), or oblique (Joseph O’Neill’s “Netherland”)? Do we face up to it with alcoholism and rage (the FX series “Rescue Me,” the Adam Sandler film “Reign Over Me”), soft focus and tears (the Robert Pattinson movie “Remember Me”), bristling defiance (Spike Lee’s “25th Hour”) or Christian resignation (Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising”)?
“There was something about Sept. 11 that defies art,” says Syracuse University’s Robert Thompson, a professor of television and popular culture. “What is so far the most enduring cultural expression of Sept. 11 was the news coverage on Sept. 11.”
