'The Pure and the Damned' by Oneohtrix Point Never ft. Iggy Pop from the official soundtrack of Good Time including unused scenes of a 'what if' ending if Connie and Nick successfully completed the heist.
10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves' brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.
Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
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?Written by
All actors didn't read the script but were given a detailed backstory of their characters and were told to improvise every scene, while Robert Pattinson and Benny Safdie had scripts but were still told to react to the others as well as they could. See more »

As soon as he hears the word JAIL, he fuckin' freaks, talkin' about "I'm not getting ripped off by one of you punks again" and he just fuckin' steps on the gas. And that was it, and just takes off. Then I hear the word COPS, I lose it, like I gotta fuck out of here. "I'm not going back to jail man, I'm not going back to jail!" So I happen to get one of the doors open before he locks the door. And this guy's crazy, he's fuckin' driving, speeding down the road 30-40 miles per hour and I know ...

The film's editors receive an unusually prominent credit position: between producers and writers. See more »
With Good Time, largely new directors the Safdie brothers present one of the most vibrant and gritty crime films in recent memory. The plot never stops to catch its breath, forcing main character Pattinson, who's acting blew me away considering his past films, to constantly adapt and evoke an engaging fight and flight response from scene to scene. The cinematography is electrifying, and the balance between wide landscape shots and claustrophobic closeups is constantly gripping. This movie is worth checking out for anyone looking for a well-directed and acted crime/thriller.
