Good Time isn't an exuberant or happy-go-lucky emotional ride, rather it's the cruel irony of white privileged in even the lowest rungs of class.

Nick's character doesn't exactly develop, but we do see its innards teased gradually apart. Ben Safdie's touching performance bookends the film with enormous grace.

Pattinson is utterly convincing as the Manson-eyed Connie, a manipulative force of nature (alternately mesmerising, repugnant and pathetic) who leaves a trail of destruction in his wake.
November 17, 2017
The masterstroke of the script is how it takes a situation that, in almost any other film of this type, would be played for pathos... and instead strip-mines it for every last iota of moral ambiguity.
November 17, 2017
The urgent docu-style filming is impressive, but it's Pattinson's fearless turn that lingers.
November 15, 2017
The Safdie brothers' crime thriller Good Time is a chaotic, wildly inventive but increasingly self-indulgent affair.
November 15, 2017
Robert Pattinson finally drives a stake through his image as the moony hunk from Twilight with this convincing, career-shifting performance - his finest to date.
November 15, 2017
Few of the characters have the first idea what might be coming next - nor do we, strapped into this feral shaggy dog story the Safdies have set rolling, hurtling towards their brilliant future.
November 14, 2017
An intoxicating downer odyssey.

Good Time follows in the footsteps of Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets. The action keeps up a relentless pace as new characters are introduced.

Forget Twilight and Kristin Stewart romance rigamarole. Those days are done. Pattinson's take on a Queens dirtbag with an adrenal gland on overload proves he's the real deal.

This isn't conventional Hollywood-horror/thriller "suspense" but something more primal.
August 25, 2017
Maybe it's not [the directors'] fault that this dark joyride offers neither an ordered route nor a satisfying destination.
August 25, 2017
Pattinson's performance is one of the year's finest and a revelation for anyone who has wanted to pigeonhole him as an actor.
August 24, 2017
With Good Time, the Safdie brothers have flaunted their gritty bona fides.
August 24, 2017
This film may not exactly be a "Good Time," but it's an interesting one.
August 24, 2017
You might hate this movie, but with a passion that almost proves its power. Anyway, when was the last time a film grabbed you by the lapels and refused to let go?
August 24, 2017
Pattinson is what helps us keep pace. He completely inhabits Connie with his jittery, twitchy efforts - he can't stand still, so neither can we.
August 24, 2017
Pattinson keeps you interested, even when the movie's tone and pace wobbles.
August 18, 2017
Whatever the intentions of the filmmakers, Good Time is a promising but flawed final product.
