About The Pleasure of Being Robbed

The story of a young woman whose compulsive curiosity leads to bold, elaborate acts of theft, Josh Safdie's THE PLEASURE OF BEING ROBBED is a beguiling blend of casual comedy and subtle, unsettling mystery.  The film, the debut feature by 24-year-old New York writer-director Safdie, was the Closing Night film of the 2008 Cannes Directors' Fortnight and the only film from the U.S. to play in that section.

Acclaim

"Delightful...A fresh, original work and one that bears the marks of New Wave-era art cinema"
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"By turns delightful, exasperating, goofy & opaque...THE AMERINDIE BREAKTHROUGH OF THE YEAR."
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Jean-Michel Frodon, Cahiers Du Cinema"
Evokes alternative NY Cinema of the 60's. And surely, Jarmusch's Permanent Vacation.
"A refreshing & original work...floating above reality with a magical & ethereal air."
Michael Tully, Hammer to Nail
