My review of Good Time, for The Tulsa Voice. It stars Robert Pattinson in a riveting performance as a New York bank robber on the run who’s trying to help his mentally handicapped brother escape from police custody at a nearby hosptial.
This “chaotic night-long journey” is a “fever dream experience” in which Pattison’s Connie Nikas “makes one foolish decision after another” and every choice he makes is done “out of fear and desperation.”
