Plenty of films revolve around heists gone wrong, but few have the desperate, grungy velocity of Good Time.
100
These restlessly independent auteurs have passed the genre-foray test with flying neon colors, at no cost or compromise to their abrasively humane worldview.
91
After such powerful momentum, the brothers don’t quite stick the landing, but it’s a thrill to watch them try.
91
A high watermark in the fusion of genre and arthouse, and an anthemic, youthful blast of generational pop art, “Good Time” is a 100 minute-long string of fire emojis, that begins and ends with a heart.
91
It is a remarkably vivid and fresh piece of filmmaking, one that builds on the directors’ previous outings without being overly familiar.
90
This is a richly textured genre piece that packs a visceral charge in its restless widescreen visuals and adrenalizing music
90
For all its throttling thrills, Good Time is a film about a destructive love — and loving someone despite not having the right kind of love to give them. Ignore the deceptively convivial title: This is the kind of thrill that sticks.
80
When Good Time’s good, it’s properly electric, and the star turn goes off like an illegal firework.
60
The journey through a nighttime New York is rich in realistic characters, observational details and some original locations.
60
The film has its own kind of mad, migrainey energy and individuality, and Robert Pattinson gives a strong, charismatic performance.
