Earlier this year, Robert Pattinson completely shed his cover-boy dashing looks to challenge himself as a dramatic actor (once again) for the thrilling and breathtakingly rewarding bank-robber crime drama Good Time. It's easily one of Pattinson's best performances, and one of the best films I have been lucky enough to see this year. But when Pattinson brought the film to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival, he told CinemaBlend about a massive and expensive scene that was cut... and it sounds insane. Pattinson tells us:
If you saw Good Time, you know that a dream sequence showing Robert Pattinson's character, Connie, slaying a dragon on a dilapidated Virginia farm would fit as well as high heels would fit on a pig. Co-directors Benny and Josh Safdie craft Good Time into a gritty, grounded and real-world robbery-gone-wrong drama, where two brothers make horrible decisions after a heist they plan goes wrong. The action is limited to the dingy boroughs around New York City, and a "dream sequence" pit stop to a Virginia farm would have been surreal.
The more that we talked, though, the more Robert Pattinson explained that a detour through Connie's damaged dreamscape might have fit, if the Safdies chose to keep it. He tells us:
Good Time is an exhilarating experience, but it's one that is so tightly wound, I think that a dream sequence would have deflated some of the necessary tension that came with Robert Pattinson being on the run for the duration of the film's run time. If anything, we hope that the demon-slaying scene makes its way onto the film's DVD as a deleted scene.
