★★★★ “An electric performance” – Craig Mathieson, SMH
“Magnetic, dynamic, complicated and compelling … one of the year’s best films” – Sarah Ward, Concrete Playground
“Pure cinematic pleasure” – The New York Times
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. White-hot indie directors, the Safdie Brothers (Heaven Knows What) return with this deliriously unpredictable thriller. 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.

A hit at the recent Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals, the latest offering from cult faves the Safdies is an exhilarating ride.
