Critic Reviews for The Pleasure of Being Robbed
The movie's refusal to judge is its most interesting attribute, if one many audiences won't be able to get around.
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.
Less pleasurable after the first fifteen minutes.
Exposes itself as a technically deficient bore with little on its agenda.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Pleasure of Being Robbed
Be Warned! Most viewers will find it to aimless, pointless and meaningless indie movie, in a lot of ways it is. But for my money this odd little film redeemed the promises of cinema; that being the ability to introduce us to people who we will never meet.
Randomness....I guess a storyline, character development, or anything isn't necessary if you can call it "art."
I couldn't stomach more than 15 minutes of this repulsive movie. The principle character was thoroughly unlikable and the dialogue obviously contrived while the scene was being shot.
