It is difficult to talk about this movie is about the usual, regular movie. For me this is just incredibly romantic and very tube-like, cozy adventure. I never been in this kind of situation, as this picture — chaotic, absurd, senseless. And I outside observer always has romanticized them. And after all, most likely in real life, with the position of the acting person, in this crazy running around there anything romantic — fear, sweat, adrenaline, rage overshadow everything. But this film how time has romanticised this criminal absurdity.

Hero Pattinson completely inexplicable, we see only its primary motivation of — to help your brother, and then he for us mystery. Have him disheveled and crazed, he's rough and cold, his eyes a confidence and depth. Who this man, about what he thinks how to perceive the events around? We not know this character is not getting poorly written/bad logic — it is secret.

Brother of the main character carries in the surface of the painting. Mental retardation, and from this baby boy makes us to worry about his fate, he is a kind of field of combat. Free life with her loving brother who accepts you as you is far from the companies which have branded you crazy, those must be isolated and healing... a Beautiful dream. And we all the picture you dream about how to carry out this totally unrealistic and poetic plan.

And of course makes the picture such a beautiful visual style and music. I'm not to understand the creating the magic of this film. In addition to the night environment, neon lights, incredible appearance Pattinson, speakers, camera, the graininess of the images there are still something that holds these elements together, turning the film in to art.

And I think that's why the film is so warmly received and leaves an impression. The plot? Yes, like we've seen dynamic movies "running around". Make sense? Well, is the film is a box to play with brains, but not too extensive and deep. Vizual? Yes no like, there are all sorts of "Neon demon" "Running on the blade", in which the visual stronger.

A beautiful film that is a romance and a mystery, which are formed from the very talented everything is filled with the film.

Yielding to the widespread advertising of this film, decided to watch, but was a little disappointed. Although the brothers Safdie are not very impressed by their previous project "God knows what". Then again we see them an unhealthy interest in Nizam of new York society. And if not for the hype created thanks to the participation in the project Pattinson, then the film would and remained well deserved the blacklist.

From the pros: holds the action in suspense, a good technical study of film. This is dealing with real social problems. Good style — the realism, but without kinks and excessive naturalism.

Cons: Too many cliches, torn brethren of different movies. Such as — the theme of mentally retarded members of criminal gangs, Bank robbery at crime ties plot, totally unrealistic silliness main characters. In General, the artificiality of the plot.

It is not entirely clear whether this is deliberate the brothers Safdie did a parody of all known simple seamy side, or no.

And Pattinson, the feeling, apparently decided that would be cool to try yourself in this Arthouse movies, here is only the movie missed.

Put a neutral rating, only due to the fact that is purely aesthetic not were no excesses in violence or sexual perversion that is not rare in such films.

You need to be honest with yourself, and admit a definite sense that I didn't catch. If you start to think about and assume that every detail the film is important, then you can go in very deep meditation:

The most basic: why "good time"? Maybe because throughout the film, the character Robert Pattinson is looking for ways to save his brother. In a his mouth. the hero is asked a question about the meaning of life, which is probably why the film is called "good time", so as for a certain period of time Pattinson is the meaning of life, and it was to "save his brother", so good time.

Perhaps the "good time"-sarcasm. Have all the characters in the film strange life, all have their problems, experiences. Possible at this is a mockery of the whole situation.

Perhaps the title refers to the past. Have all of the unknown heroes of the past, but when the film tries to lift the curtain of the past, as in the time of the report on the news interviewed grandmother of the hero Pattinson is the interview was interrupted by himself character (turned off TV), or terminate the installation. Perhaps before all was "a good time", which is not available, and unlikely it is somewhere nearby. To this version is supported by an atmospheric soundtrack with already a little beaten retroweaver and electronics. Odinochka to the past.

And of these reflections it is possible to hold very many, so as there is the unequivocal answer is no one question.

Of the benefits of the picture I would like to note the atmosphere, interesting story, the soundtrack (Yes, he beaten, but hurt too good it for the dynamics), fine acting absolutely all, everyone here in place.

Among the shortcomings sooo big questions about scenario. Most likely it is subjective, but I would like, though, a little background to understand what, why and why, yeah and it would be good to close the arch of the character Pattinson.

There is much more to discuss at different plot moves, but stop the recommendations still to look at this picture, can someone uncertainty in the film will give ground for reflection.
