    Good Time

    ★★★★

    This one came very highly recommended and I don;t regret seeing it. It was a frenetic white-knuckle ride. As a cinematic experience, it was more than a Good Time, it was a great time!

It is 94% a ghost (man covered with a sheet with two eye holes cut out) staring at objects/people/the camera/our souls. The other 6% is divided between a self important hipster redneck monologing about his theories of existence and nihilism, and Rooney Mara stabbing at…
