Our take

Look out Coens, America has a new filmmaking team of brothers! After several ingenious shorts, the Safdies took to the streets of N.Y. for this debut, which tells the story of a lonely kleptomaniac. Its sly gags and loose-limbed freedom paved the way to hits like Good Time and Uncut Gems.
