This Saturday, October 16th at 7:00 p.m. the Cinema at Casa Haas will present the film “Good Time” (2017) by American directors Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie, presented at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for La Palma de Oro.

Nick Nikas (Benny Safdie) is a mentally handicapped young man who gets caught up in a bank robbery led by his brother Connie (Robert Pattinson). The robbery is a disaster, and on the run the police arrest Nick, who ends up in jail. In order to find the money to bail out his brother and not spend the night in prison, Connie embarks on a reckless odyssey against the clock.

“Good Times” is an intense, fiery and mind-blowing film that is full of violence but does not feature a single shot. Blood is shed in pain and depicted in horror. There’s a dash of out of place comedy and a grandiose, elevated arc of classic irony, but the irony is never about violence, in which the Safdies find nothing amusing. Violence is not aesthetic, it is not embellished, it is not exalted. Rather, it’s quick, simple, and sordid.

The film is screened in its original language, English with Spanish subtitles, free admission.
