The urgent docu-style filming is impressive, but it's Pattinson's fearless turn that lingers.
November 14, 2017
An intoxicating downer odyssey.

If you come away from it with nothing else, Pattinson's performance is solid enough to make you forgive him those vampire movies: everyone has to start somewhere.

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.

This film may not exactly be a "Good Time," but it's an interesting one.

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?

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.
August 18, 2017
Tense, immersive and excellently assaulting, Good Time is hella time.
August 17, 2017
Pattinson makes Connie one of the best roles of his career by turning a two-bit hood into a loyal family guy driven to help his brother. John Steinbeck would recognize these characters. So would Martin Scorsese, who is thanked in the credits.

When Good Time hits its visceral lows, Pattinson keeps the movie from feeling like an exercise in futility, finding something human within a character who's quickly losing himself in an atmosphere of total chaos.
August 17, 2017
What starts out as an invigorating odyssey winds up becoming an enervating series of postures.
August 17, 2017
Not since Gaspar Noé's Enter the Void have I been so mesmerized by a film I found morally repugnant.
August 17, 2017
Most crime movies, even alleged indies, make it easy for the audience to take sides and establish clear rooting interests. "Good Time" is better than that: It's not always easy to take, yet you can't look away.
August 15, 2017
In the end, the whole enterprise comes off as too clever for its own good, a social satire without a clear target. It's a movie that you admire more than you like.
Top Critic
August 14, 2017
The acting by a mostly amateur cast is over the top, the writing is genuinely ludicrous, and the characters so contrived that the movie defies even the most basic logic.
August 14, 2017
It marks a major stride forward, at once sure-footed in its method and destabilizing in its effect.
