Back in 2010, The FADER chatted with the New York City filmmakers the Safdie Brothers. At the time, the brothers were pushing their second feature film, Daddy Longlegs, a shambling little indie flick that would go on to win them a small but impassioned cheering section. In the seven years since, they've made both Lenny Cooke, a heartbreaking basketball documentary, and Heaven Knows What, an equally affecting junkie love story. With careful intent, they've carved out a hell of a filmography. Now, they're unrolling their highest profile project to date.
Good Time (out August 11) comes from the elite movie imprint A24, features a collaboration between Oneohtrix Point Never and Iggy Pop, and features actual movie star Robert Pattinson in a performance already being called a career best. Starring alongside a cast of new actors and legends alike (*climbs to the highest mountain* JENNIFER JASON LEIGH), Pattinson plays a Queens man finding himself in deeper and deeper trouble as he fights, over the course of one night, to save his beloved little brother.
