‘Good Time’ is a new film directed by brothers Josh and Benny Safdie, starring Robert Pattinson and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It arrives in cinemas August 11, but it’s already won the Best Soundtrack Award at Cannes 2017.
The award winning OST is by Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never. The soundtrack is out on Warp Records on August 11 too. OPN had this to say about the collaboration with the Safdie siblings.
“I had a good feeling when I walked into their midtown office, which was more like a shrine to everything they loved — amongst which was a massive Akira print side by side with one of King of New York. They told me they were setting out to make a genre film. To me the Safdies are doing something really unique and yet drenched in tradition. I think of Jarmusch, Tarantino, Carax — directors whose love of the history of cinema is too strong to keep out of the filmmaking itself, but remain totally idiosyncratic anyway. We share an affection and reverence for bruised and battered stuff, and I think we both feel this urge to enshrine the history as it is now, not as it was then. On our own terms.”
