Storyline

Motivated by an almost ferocious love for his intellectually disabled brother, Nick, and an explosive mix of desperation and thirst for a better life, the abrasive and fledgeling criminal, Connie, involves his sibling in an ill-conceived bank robbery that swears to be a quick and easy job. Instead, things go utterly wrong, and Nick will wind up in Rikers Island after one unanticipated complication, forcing the desperate but determined Connie to embark on a nightmarish, no-holds-barred quest to bail Nick out. Inevitably, over the course of a long and violent night, Connie will go to great lengths to save Nick from a cruel fate, doomed, however, to do more harm than good. Is it all heading somewhere?

Gritty and realistic
15 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Good Time" its a magnificent film, I cant think of many words that would make this movie justice, its definitely one of those movies that I need to rewatch in order to come up with something meaningful to say about it, and I am looking forward to that.

This is such a peculiar film, its grounded in reality yet it allows itself to be unrealistic at points to get the story going and its not annoying in any way, you are so caught up in the moment it doesn't even matter. I would like to emphasize on how real it feels, you root for these people who are total scumbags, but you understand them, you even kinda of like them.

I have seen people call this a crime movie, its a fitting label to some extent, but I wouldn't call this a crime movie, in the same way "Taxi Driver" isn't a crime movie, it has people breaking the law but its focus is on another place.
