B-level documentary w/ heart
3 November 2013 | by ianoutSee all my reviews

The title intrigued me , art of thievery has a captured audience, so it will appeal to those with a sense curiosity for the skillset. The documentary is certainly not all bling bling or celebrated footage of criminals caught on surveillance tape with eye popping action get-away scenes. The animation scenes are a nice touch alternative to watching or listening to someone being interviewed in a dark room with face/speech altered .Thumb up for creativity! I was really captured by the underlying story about Yugoslavia's historical event pattern / war / economic strife / social deterioration and how people coped and dealt with the impacts amidst crisis.Not a whole lot different than US prohibition era. I did not think the author glamorized the tradecraft and seemed pretty restricted about details from both sides of the law regarding the actual crime part. Overall worth watching from an educational standpoint ..not entertainment.
