BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 08/25/2017

Good-Time-movie-1GOOD TIME

“It’s one thing to make a film with great inspiration and another to use that inspiration to harbor and hone a unique vision.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

“… an edgy, electrifying movie that feels a little bit dangerous.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“With GOOD TIME, the Safdies have created something decidedly poppier, leaving behind the melodrama of HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT in favor of something more like a crime odyssey.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“Swiveling from gut-busting laughter to nail-biting danger, heart-racing panic attacks to heartbreaking desolation, playful surrealism to staggering social commentary, GOOD TIME is a hell of a thing and will remain one of the year’s very best films.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

 

ingrid-goes-west1INGRID GOES WEST

“…INGRID GOES WEST has a lot of great material to work with — mental illness, loneliness, alcoholism, narcissism, the desolate vacuum of social media — but it never quite grasps any of the ideas and themes its aiming to put on the table.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“…despite all the film’s qualities, it becomes just as basic as the people it mocks—because who needs to go to the movies to feel superior to a typical Instagram post? ” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston
