A gripping tale of depravity and corruption
19 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good Time was everything I wanted it to be and more. I found it to be incredibly intense and gripping while also being extremely overwhelming, as it was intended and as it should be. It reminded me a lot of Requiem for a Dream in its insistence to not let the viewer take a moment to breathe or gather their thoughts. On a superficial level it works because it's filled with adrenaline that not many films carry and that allows it to be thrilling and entertaining. More importantly, however, it succeeds on a deeper level by showing the way a person can incite an endless cycle of depravity and corruption that manages to affect the lives of so many other people. Beyond the initial thrills and the aesthetically-pleasing elements (like its score, which is so effectively used to create the environment that the characters live in), the film manages to write its characters with incredible care and surprising nuance. It's one of the best recent examples of the crime film that I've seen, one that is completely unafraid of showing you the ugliness of it all. And did I mention that Robert Pattinson is amazing in this? He's shown himself to be quite talented, most notably in The Rover with Guy Pearce. He's worthy of a lead role like this and he's flawless, his final scene being the perfect demonstration of his abilities.
