+ high-res version

Rewatched: 16 January

I think even more highly of Good Time than I did when I first saw it in 2017, and was impressed again by its relentlessness, its wired energy and the constant twists and turns of the story; there are so many coups de cinéma here it’s hard to keep up at times, and although a few of the plot holes became more noticeable the second time round I don’t really care, to be honest – it all gets lost amid the wild, buzzing energy of the film anyway. Pattinson is on fantastic, career best form, but there are several excellent supporting performances – some of which are delivered by non-professional, street cast actors. Looks great, sounds great and if I see a more thrilling opening 25 minutes to any film this year I’ll be a happy man indeed. (****½)
