Connie’s wild night as he frantically tries to rescue his disabled brother, arrested after a botched bank robbery. The Safdie brothers are the cream of the crop of indie New York filmmakers, and this nerve-rattling thriller is their best yet. Unhinged characters, unpredictable twists and a murky ambience come together in a white-knuckle ride, driven by an electro-score that jars with the action to surprise and thrill. Teen idol Robert Pattinson sheds his celebrity status spectacularly.
