Motivated by an almost ferocious love for his intellectually disabled brother, Nick, and an explosive mix of desperation and thirst for a better life, the abrasive and fledgeling criminal, Connie, involves his sibling in an ill-conceived bank robbery that swears to be a quick and easy job. Instead, things go utterly wrong, and Nick will wind up in Rikers Island after one unanticipated complication, forcing the desperate but determined Connie to embark on a nightmarish, no-holds-barred quest to bail Nick out. Inevitably, over the course of a long and violent night, Connie will go to great lengths to save Nick from a cruel fate, doomed, however, to do more harm than good. Is it all heading somewhere?

    As a city that never sleeps, New York City has its share of mania and that's what's served up in non-stop staccato bursts in "Good Time". It's a lot like the bad acid trips depicted in the movie (better to just experience those scenes than spoil them). It's jangly, the soundtrack jarring, but the scripts is at turns irony-soaked black comedy, neon noir, and unflinching in character portrayal.

    "Good Time" to me reinforces the enjoyment of watching an indie film; it's visceral and unapologetic in telling the story. I just watched the movie sight unseen with just the rating as my guide. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Good Time was a neon lit, claustrophobic rat trap of a film. Starring Robert Pattinson as Connie Nikas as he tries to break out his mentally ill brother following a failed bank robbery. This whole film follows the events of one night in which the protagonist constantly runs around New York city as events go from bad to worse and to down right absurd, and it was great. It was very amazing to watch, as the film really had this tonal shift in a very key moment of the film after which Good Time played somewhat like an installment of the Hangover series unfolding in a most breathtaking and beautiful cityscape.

    Robert Pattinson in this film was truly uncanny, this isn't Robert Pattinson the sexy, young vampire as we had known him from the Twilight saga but this is a grizzled, refined actor. This complete 180 of the actor has been slowly building since we last saw him in the Lost city of Z where he played an older man differing a lot from his previous roles. Now, we have Good Time where he plays a complete scum and unsympathetic character except perhaps for his love of his little brother. This is a riveting performance by Pattinson as we follow him through the slums of New York city slowly digging himself into an inescapable hole.

    This film explores the idea of that one misstep, one mistake that can turn things from good to bad in a split second. It was so interesting seeing a character like this and his constant attempts of digging himself out of this issue and situation that he has gotten himself into. More interestingly the futility of these attempts as we see him struggle but keep working against himself where one wrong move leads him to dead end after dead end, not only so but the walls are slowly closing in.

    I have mentioned that it is very interesting because we get to see this unsympathetic character but I think that actually this narrative angle does in fact allow certain space for us to sympathize with this character, in spite of the horrible deeds, as viewers I feel that there is a certain backstory that we would automatically apply to this character, a backstory that I feel was specifically left out in order to fuel audience imagination. We sympathize because we reason ourselves into doing so in order to makes sense of his actions.

    Good Time was a fresh, different thriller with a very dark comedic tone sewn throughout the film.

    A really decent performance from Robert Pattinson and lovely claustrophobic analog techy music from Oneohtrix Point Never make this a decent effective crime film.

    There's absolutely no glamour here in this New York. The film is a twitchy 'for the hell of it' exploit film with a grubby 80's feel.

    I'm not sure there's a point to the film or a deeper meaning. You may find one yourself. But personally I just took it for what it was - a ride through a crime gone wrong.

    A breathless 6 out of 10 from me
