Good Time

Good Time ★★★★★

everyday i think about untwisting and untangling
these strings i’m in
and to lead a pure life
look ahead at a clear sky
ain’t gonna get there
it’s a nice dream
it’s a nice dream

The sheer chaos depicted on-screen here is one of the most deft narrative structures I’ve ever witnessed, with each compulsive lie almost autonomously making a decision to career into some innocent bystander’s life. Connie keeps on going with one goal in mind, adapting to each new situation like the world’s scummiest chameleon in order to achieve it, no matter the cost. It’s the lies that sustain him until they burn out around him. I guess the truth really is an act of love.
