Well-acted, well-filmed fake documentary
25 September 2013 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I'm amazed at the number of people Lexington this film and think it portrays an actual thief doing real crimes.

It isn't.

Nor could it.

If 'Kaspar' was as 'smart' as he constantly reminds the crew (and us), he'd be VERY dumb to have his face, filmed as well as filmed proof of his crimes.

Saying that, I WILL say that unlike a lot (most) other fake, documentary-styled fiction, it is VERY convincingly made.

As this is just a review, I'll only go so far as to say that some of the methods Kaspar used are not accurate (clever, yes - & a helluva lot better than either your typical 'crime' film, or - even what REAL thieves would do/use).

Director/star Malik Bader gets credit - for making Kaspar a fully-dimensional character.

Not a likable one, but, definitely believable.
