      David Fear Time Out Rated: 4/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Ty Burr Boston Globe The movie's refusal to judge is its most interesting attribute, if one many audiences won't be able to get around. Rated: 2/4 Jan 29, 2009 Full Review Rob Nelson Variety Few ticketbuyers will take joy in The Pleasure of Being Robbed, Joshua Safdie's pranksterish New York indie portrait of a deeply unsympathetic young distaff hustler. Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Daniel Kasman MUBI "The Pleasure of Being Robbed" isn't exactly a criticism of its generational brethren, but it is a fundamental improvement, a small quiet film that sees its small quietness with a sympathetic sadness Nov 16, 2017 Full Review Prairie Miller NewsBlaze Our morbid curiosity for this criminal activity, akin to public gawking at traffic accidents, effectively lures us into complicity with both her and the filmmaker. And despite the moral implications constantly tugging on our collective conscience. Feb 7, 2010 Full Review Lee Marshall Screen International A charming indie title, suffused with the spirit of the French New Wave of the early sixties and possessed of a quirky likeability.

      isla s This appears as if its a documentary show - there's little strong plot involved, its a film about a kelptomaniac. I can't say I felt sorry for the main character, she's clearly quirky and there is a sort of urban charm about it but its not a very memorable film and it was, if anything, a little too quirky for me. I wouldn't especially recommend it, no. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member dfdfdsf Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member From a confused start to... a confused rest of the film, this first for the Safdie brothers provided no more than an observational experience that simply didn't work for me. Neither immersive nor impressive, nor deep nor powerful, I felt detached from the start and could not manage to cling on to anything throughout. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a point of view that needed to be revealed - an existential look, an "it is what it is" view we can easily over-analze. These are all people to watch, we'll be seeing them again soon. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Film based on realism so not entertaining. Nibbles: Roasted cat pie.
