Beginning August 2
NOW The Films that Inspired Josh and Benny Safdie's Good Time
Heat, After Hours, Miami Blues, Jackie Brown, Scarecrow, Thief, 48 Hours, and more!
Beginning Wednesday August 2, Metrograph will present NOW, a series of films that inspired the filmGood Time (starring Robert Pattinson and opening August 11 by A24), curated by directors Josh and Benny Safdie. Per the Safdies, "Here's a bunch of movies that kept us hot and bothered all through the conception and realization of our newest feature. There's a nylon thread running through 'em: the hapless plight of the snake-bit fool, bouncing through life like a pinball, responding shrewdly to the moment but having zero say in the future. It's the present tense alone makes the hero holy, and it's his utter impotence in the grand scheme of life that makes him human. So enjoy the NOW!"
