The Pleasure Of Being Selected For Director's Fortnight

If Josh Safdie's hand were in front of me right now, I would give it a congratulatory shake; his exquisite debut feature The Pleasure Of Being Robbed (which I reviewed for Spout way back when) has been selected as the closing night film of the Director's Fortnight at Cannes! It doesn't happen often in this workaday world, but sometimes things just work out the way they're supposed to, and amazing films that deserve recognition actually get it. Bravo!

i know, before the world had a chance to fuck things up Safdie slipped through the cracks and glory has prevailed. soooooo cool!
