Highly Suspect Reviews: Good Time

NYC has often been visualized as a fantasy land, a nightmarish landscape, or even hell itself, and the film Good Time definitely puts the city into the ‘almost a character in the film itself’ category. Robert Pattinson (yes, that one) has a brother who is mentally handicapped but he refuses to admit there’s anything wrong with him. When he makes him go on a bank robbery with him, his brother is captured by the police and Robert spends a hellish night desperately looking for any solution as a way to free his brother.

Directors Ben and Josh Safdie have created something really unique here and kind of insane. Even as it reminds one of Dog Day Afternoon or After Hours, it’s so clearly its own thing. But, that Movie Movbeing said, some people liked it a whole lot more than others. Listen to Frank and Chris hash it out.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
