    Fucking shocked (not really) it took Netflix this long to produce something so loving and rich about the art and philosophy of filmmaking. The amount of care and thoughtfulness put into every episode makes me more and more excited and giddy about my love of cinema. This medium is so fucking powerful, all it takes is a reminder or two or three or four to feel it through your eyes and ears if you ever are doubtful. I hope 50 more episodes are on their way.

    If I’m able to see this movie 5 times within the span of a month, I’m not sure if that says more about me as a person being a psychopath or the movie itself being so infectious and lovely and intoxicating. I’ll go with the latter. Paul Thomas Anderson and Alana Haim popped out for a convo after this showing and they were both so red in their cheeks from all the love from the audience, Paul said it was…

    Watching with Jordan Peeles commentary cracked me into deservingly giving this a fat, thic, juicy, 5 stars. Such incredible attention to story, details, characters, lore, pacing. Brilliant movie made by a brilliant man. You wanna get into filmmaking? Study this as hard as you can. Whiplashed by the horrific fun of it all.

    Pure cinematic poetry, the true essence of expanding what is possible with stories and filmmaking all done in a minimally sexy style and ALL set during Christmas??? Nothing screams the Holidays like celebrating your Bfs suicide with a Spain getaway! Lynne Ramsay is a godsend, why has barely anyone seen this?!!! Make it your X-mas movie tradition, fuck it. Perfect for the family.

    Lynne Ramsay has made (2) very bleak and distressing movies that take place during Christmas and both have some of the most striking compositions of hands, lips, shoes, and inanimate objects that I’ve ever seen. So hard to not be enthralled by her cinematic language.

    It’s Lynne Ramsay’s Birthday today guys please put respect on her name by watching one of her masterpieces today. Her short films are better than most people’s feature films 😭

    A czech version of Jessie’s origin story in Toy Story 2 except I am more terrified than depressed about a toy that is neglected.

    Each and everyone of the Safdie Brothers short films is inherently more interesting and has more personality than most of the people I interact with in my life, these guys always have rocked and always shall.

    It’s been more than a year and a half since I’ve last rewatched this (12th viewing ;) and I’ll be DAMNED if it still doesn’t hit and make me want to explode into a million pieces. No film has ever captured this energy. I write this as my framed poster of Good Time watches over me above my bed and just feel so grateful to live in this time of new age powerhouse indies that are flourishing and alive as they riproar the screens we watch them on. A gem of a time ⏰

    The atmosphere and tone is unreal in this, everytime I rewatch I’m more and more impressed by the constraint yet control. So admirable and inspiring on so many levels, top tier nightmare sequences and dread progression. Again, best not to know a damn thing going into this. This is the standard to meet for chilly indie filmmaking.

    Magical evening seeing this on 35mm. Sean Baker showing the world how to make independent films that are down n dirty n damn inspiring to the most questionable yet charming degree. Simon Rex is such a king, always has been and always will be. Get ready for a genuine jaw dropper, you’ll walk out feeling so many things. Feeling incredibly inspired tonight!

    Nothing like starting December off with the most chaotic and trashy Christmas movie ever made. 🎄 Sean Baker was wildin out making this motion picture, JESUS! Watch it with the fam on X-mas day for a real bonding experience.
