Earlier this yr, Robert Pattinson fully shed his cover-boy dashing looks to problem himself as a dramatic actor (as soon as once more) for the thrilling and breathtakingly rewarding bank-robber crime drama Good Time. It is simply one in all Pattinson’s greatest performances, and one of the best films I’ve been fortunate sufficient to see this yr. However when Pattinson introduced the movie to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival, he informed CinemaBlend a couple of huge and costly scene that was lower… and it sounds insane. Pattinson tells us:
[The Safdie brothers] would lower out loopy sequences. They lower out the costliest scene in your entire film. I do not know in the event you noticed the Iggy Pop video, which was… it was this entire factor. I do not know if anybody even actually is aware of what the precise level of the film is, however the entire level of the film is that we’re robbing the financial institution to purchase this land in Virginia. It is like a farm. [Laughs] Which everybody misses! Nobody will get this. And we shot, there was a scene the place I am speaking with Crystal, the younger woman. I am within the bathe describing that I had this dream about being on this farm in Virginia. As I am telling this story, there’s this entire sequence that exhibits the dream of the farm. And it is really this hellish, disgusting shack in the midst of nowhere. There’s this demon residing on it. And I slay this demon… [Laughs] Yeah, it is loopy.
In the event you noticed Good Time, you realize that a dream sequence exhibiting Robert Pattinson‘s character, Connie, slaying a dragon on a dilapidated Virginia farm would match in addition to excessive heels would match on a pig. Co-directors Benny and Josh Safdie craft Good Time right into a gritty, grounded and real-world robbery-gone-wrong drama, the place two brothers make horrible selections after a heist they plan goes improper. The motion is proscribed to the dingy boroughs round New York Metropolis, and a “dream sequence” pit cease to a Virginia farm would have been surreal.
The extra that we talked, although, the extra Robert Pattinson defined detour by Connie’s broken dreamscape may need match, if the Safdies selected to maintain it. He tells us:
A lot of the film is mainly simply Connie’s imprisonment. He has mainly misplaced his thoughts. He’s sort of loopy to start with, and he is having visions. That is why, when the financial institution theft is occurring, nobody is especially scared or something. It is ordained. All the pieces for Connie is ordained. Me and Josh would joke at first that Connie is form of a superhero. However his superpower is that he can see about 40 seconds into the long run, and that is it. [Laughs] So you might be continually with the ability to predict issues that solely are a millisecond upfront.
Good Time is an exhilarating expertise, nevertheless it’s one that’s so tightly wound, I believe dream sequence would have deflated a number of the essential stress that got here with Robert Pattinson being on the run at some stage in the movie’s run time. If something, we hope that the demon-slaying scene makes its means onto the movie’s DVD as a deleted scene.
