Dirs. Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie. US, 2017, 101 mins. With Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie, Buddy Duress, Taliah Lennice Webster, Barkhad Abdi, Jennifer Jason Leigh. After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through New York City’s underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother, Nick (Benny Safdie), out of jail. Directors Josh and Benny Safdie (Uncut Gems) set their story throughout Queens, where hard workers come into conflict with hustlers, tract housing developments feel like halls of mirrors, and matters of life and death are settled along the E train. Featuring a never-better Pattinson, a propulsive score by Oneohtrix Point Never, and arresting 35mm cinematography by Sean Price Williams. Part of Queens on Screen series.
