A Very Good Time
13 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very ironic title as a good time was not had by Constantine "Connie" Nikas (Played by Robert Pattinson who I'm sure is having a good time over the praise he's getting from the film). His brother lands in jail after a bad bank heist and Connie is trying to raise the bail money to get him out, which turns out to be a serious night walking down the danger zone.

Robert Pattinson does do an amazing job in this movie. I come from a stand point of a person who has never scene Twilight so I have little impression of who he was really as an actor prior, except to say he looks very different now and the difference is better. You can compare this performance in this to DiNiro's in Taxai Driver, it does stand up like that.

I really liked what the Safdie brothers have done here. Ben (Who doubles as co-director and plays Connie's brother, Nick) and his brother, Josh have created a well told adventure here through the gritty part of The city, using that strange retro 80s style all the fresh young directors in their thirties seem to be doing. Good Time is raw and grounded yet slick and stylistic. Makes me want to see the rest of their filmography.

It's oddly colorful and filled with characters. It does not seem like the type of movie people would get but it's relateable, thanks in large part to the focus on Mr. Twilight, cause it does pay to have a well known actor in your movie.

Good watch!
