NOW: Films that Inspired the Safdie Brothers' Good Time

August 3 to August 10

"Movie crime, real crime, heroes, zeroes, the naked, the dead and the termites eating away at your Lazy Boy's legs. Here's a bunch of movies that kept us hot and bothered all through the conception and realization of our newest feature. There's a nylon thread running through 'em: the hapless plight of the snakebit fool, bouncing through life like a pinball, responding shrewdly to the moment but having zero say in the future. It's the present tense alone makes the hero holy, and it's his utter impotence in the grand scheme of life that makes him human. So enjoy the NOW!"
