Good Time is about not being at the right place at the right time
When I had read about Good Time in the New Zealand International Film Festival catalogue I had thought it would be old wine in a new bottle but I anyway planned to watch it because I am a sucker for heist based thrillers. After watching the film yesterday I realized that this film is no old wine but a distinctly tasty elixir that I never knew existed. There is a hilarious twist in this film that acts like a virtual bridge between the initial events and the final events.
The film is infused with moments of frustration, disruption and ambition and the director makes sure you easily slip into the muddled -up mind of the character played by Robert Pattinson who by the way has evolved in leaps and bounds as an actor over the last few years. Good Time is about not being at the right place at the right time. The Safdie brothers have done a brilliant job in telling a great heist story whose most prominent trait is the suppressed humour with which the film is laced.
