Dirs. Josh and Bennie Safdie. 2017, 100 mins. Digital Projection. With Robert Pattinson, Bennie Safdie, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, Buddy Duress. After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself racing against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing both their lives hang in the balance. Directors Josh and Bennie Safdie (Heaven Knows What, Daddy Longlegs) set their latest New York story throughout Queens, where hard workers come into conflict with hustlers, tract housing developments feel like a hall of mirrors, and matters of life and death are settled along the E train. Featuring a career-peak performance by Robert Pattinson, a propulsive score by Oneohtrix Point Never, and arresting 35mm cinematography by Sean Price Williams.
