Oh my goodness, 2 full-blown PDL references in that trailer. (Blue suit and dolly shot of running.)

itís wild to think that the Safdies alone now represent the gritty and cinematic side of nyc, which for so long was expressed by so many types of people. now itís the Safdies

in a social cultural context i can read the room thusly: itís this yearís The Florida Project, the film thatís emblematic of the highest achievements of cinema from the perspective of art, reality, and coolness, which would have previously been Good Time also, but that was the year of The Florida Project

Loved it. Itís almost comic to see the Safdies take their insular aesthetic and stretch it to the absolute limit of ambition(almost to the point to where you wonder where they go from here?). Feels like a lot of people coming together at their peak, which is rare and always a great to see. Just the perfect mix of actor and material here. The Safdies have such great eyes for faces, thereís so many great mugs in this, and we get to see them all in extra close-up. Julia Fox is a fox. A masterpiece of uninhibited energy and sound design.

This stressed me the fuck out. Makes Good Time feel like Itís a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Woman next to me was on the verge of a meltdown the entire time. Yeah I loved it. Where will the Safdies go next?
