The Safdie Brothers (Uncut Gems) made their mark with this deliriously unpredictable thriller, lensed by incredible DOP trend-setter Sean Price Williams. After a botched bank robbery lands his vulnerable younger brother in prison, small-time hustler Constantine (Robert Pattinson) is plunged into the buzzing labyrinth of New York’s underworld in an increasingly desperate attempt to free the only family he has. With an award-winning score by Oneohtrix Point Never and breakout performances from Pattinson and Ben Safdie as his brother Nick, Good Time recalls the grit and urgency of ‘70s American crime films like Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Dog Day Afternoon.

Why You Should See This Film

This grimy, sweaty two-hander is a great time for us, the viewer, and a distinctly terrible time for everyone on screen. Good Time premiered in Cannes in the Main Competition, won the Cannes Soundtrack Award and went on to win the Prix Du Jury Prize as well as Best Actor for Pattinson at the International Cinephile Society Cannes Awards. Pattinson gives nuclear heat in this one, swinging from sympathetic repellent on a dime, ably supported by incredible turns from Taliah Webster as a vulnerable young girl and the late great Buddy Duress as the guy you never want to run into in a parking lot. Cinematographer Sean Price Williams also shot The Sweet East, bringing a beautiful neon glow to some very dark deeds.
