NSW Regional Premiere
Robert Pattinson electrifies in this pulse-quickening heist thriller from American indie stars Josh and Benny Safdie, one of the most buzzed-about hits at this year’s Cannes festival. Also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh.
White-hot directors Josh and Benny Safdie return with a distinctly American genre outing, headlined by a never-better Robert Pattinson as a low-rent bank robber plunged into a dizzying, labyrinthine odyssey through the New York City underworld.
With evocative cinematography from Sean Price Williams (Queen of Earth, SWIFF 2016) and a jittery, Tangerine Dream-like electronic score by Oneohtrix Point Never, the Safdies’ latest is a thrilling, dazzlingly crafted descent into violence that recalls less the retro fetishism of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive than the heady realism of ’70s crime joints such as Mean Streets and Dog Day Afternoon.
Official Selection 2017 Cannes Film Festival
“With Robert Pattinson giving a raw performance full of gutter urgency, this powerfully immersive thriller from directors Josh and Benny Safdie crackles with unpredictability.” – Screen Daily
