GOOD TIME (Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie, 2017)

One hundred minutes of pure adrenaline rush accompanied by a pulsating soundtrack that made every scene as intense as my midnight snack runs. I literally had to keep wiping the imaginary sweat off my forehead.

The relationship of Connie (Robert Pattinson, delivering a career-defining, Oscar-worthy performance) and his brother Nick (Ben Safdie) reminded me so much of the same bond between Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows in Prison Break. That same immense feeling of desperation oozing off the screen was simply heartbreaking.

I also really liked the irony of the title. Nothing in this wild ride was enjoyable, but almost everything about it was definitely memorable.
