Critic Reviews for The GoodTimesKid
Very rough, very funny, with sensibilities derived equally from Chaplin, Jim Jarmusch, and the Gang of Four.
Azazel Jacobss unexpectedly beguiling romantic comedy, The GoodTimesKid, finds poetry in wordless scenes of observation.
Audience Reviews for The GoodTimesKid
In Azazel Jacobs film The Good Times Kid, the lives of two unrelated men, both named Rodolfo Cano, intertwine during a 24 hour time window in LA. They are both brought together when one of the Rodolfo's in mistaken by the US Army for the other, who has enlisted into the service. Thrown in the middle is Diaz, well played by the luminescent Sara Diaz, who toggles between the two when deciding her own future. What plays out is quite reminiscent to the early films of Jim Jarmusch, complete with understated performances, key musical moments and the saving grace of the film, stunning cinematography by Eric Curtis and director Jacobs. An extremely charming an interesting film that slipped under the radar back in 2005 but deserves a good look.
