ayad’s review published on Letterboxd:
electrifying, captivating, breathtaking (literally), there’s so many things I can say about good time but what really stood out for me this time is just how much it had an effect on me after i finished watching it. yes i do love many many movies but it’s rare for me to get super affected by a film hours after watching it but here i am walking my dog with my heart still racing and my brain banging inside my head. this movie might not affect me emotionally as much as my other high ratings but it’s one of the rare times where i feel like i won’t act the same after it. it’s like i’m so full of energy i could run across the entire globe twenty times i don’t even know why or how it’s just something this movie did, the safdies are on an league of their own.
i don’t think i can show someone my true aesthetic without forcing them to watch good time twenty times back to back there’s just something about it that screams ME. i love watching a film and not wanting to shut up about it having completely take over my mind even if it’s just for a couple of hours thank you mr pattinson for one of the best performances of the decade :)
