Alexander Payne has made some incredible films that I’ve enjoyed immensely, such as Sideways and Election. The concept seemed like a unique idea for him to tackle next and could lend itself to plenty of comedic ideas while also delivering dark humor and scathing satire that he is best known for. But Downsizing is unfortunately an ambitious disaster. I appreciate when a film takes twist and turns that I was not expecting but this film takes its plot into unsatisfying…
it's such a long way down. i was glued to my TV while watching Good Time. very well paced film about a criminal who keeps digging himself into a deeper hole while trying to get his brother out of an infamous New York jail. i loved watching Connie utilize the city around him to get what he needs with no remorse. a colorful yet grimey crime thriller directed with energy and anxiety by the safdie brothers. robert pattison was amazing in this!
