Good Time ★★★★½

Good Time is a tightly-told, 101-minute thriller with well-developed characters and an up-close, grainy, neon aesthetic that’ll have me keeping an eye out for anything the Safdie brothers create in the future.

The opening scene is an absolute gut punch. Within a few seconds you begin to understand Nick’s situation, and with a few tears, you fully-understand Connie’s uncompromising (yet misguided) devotion to his brother.

Nothing in this world is fair or predictable—Connie relentlessly takes advantage of everyone he crosses paths with in what becomes a downward spiral for the main character, but a soaring performance for Pattinson.

Bonus points for being a thriller with no guns.
Owned. Will re-watch frequently.
