Films I Like: Good Time by Benny & Josh Safdie

Benny and Josh Safdie are great at making audiences uncomfortable. I’ve read countless reviews about how their films are tense and unrelenting. This is true, but they somehow manage to remain enjoyable. With its neon tinge and oscillations between loudness and silence, Good Time feels like a faster, unhappier Drive. Robert Pattinson delivers a solid performance as a character we’re not intended to like by the end of the film.
