- ‘Good Time’ Review: Robert Pattinson Lurches Desperately Through Queens

Brother filmmakers Joshua and Ben Safdie tell a taut, tough tale of one sibling doing everything possible to bail out the otherThe spirit of independent cinema is alive and well, but it’s also grown frustratingly familiar.Go to Sundance or SXSW, and you’ll find a bevy of meandering movies built on the existential despair of middle-aged white men, quotidian characters who are often despondent, divorced, or both.[...] while brother directors Joshua and Ben Safdie (“Heaven Knows What”) find themselves trafficking this territory (their films are economical, efficient), the art itself stands out.The dynamic directing duo seems to bask in discomfort throughout their latest project, “Good Time,” which premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday night and is the cinematic equivalent to a 100-minute walking heartache.Both are wearing the kind of discolored, distorted latex masks only used during Halloween or a bank robbery.The Safdie brothers, with the help of composer Daniel Lopatin’s foreboding, electronic score, are uninterested in the former.The melody is something like a modern take on “The Fugitive” in which Connie traverses Queens, ducking and hiding from those searching for him.Stumbling around the borough, Connie is a confounding character, at once repulsive and endearing.Traditionally, his actions (theft, deceit, luring an underage girl, more theft) would not warrant our sympathy, and yet it’s hard to dislike Connie.The cinematography of Sean Price Williams (a crown jewel within the NYC indie filmmaking scene) is on full display.With the help of locations manager Samson Jacobson (a native who scouted locations for “Inside Llewyn Davis”), Queens is presented as the true underbelly of New York, replete with underdogs, oddballs, hustlers and blue-collar denizens.Connie is doing everything that he’s doing — begging his uptown sugar-mama (Jennifer Jason Leigh) for money, retrieving a bottle of acid to turn a profit — for his brother.
