A pair of filmmakers spend several weeks getting inside the mind of a master thief in this mock documentary from first-time directors Malik Bader and Miles Harrison. Kaspar Carr is a professional burglar who lives and works in Chicago. Carr loves his job and is good at it, and two documentary filmmakers are granted access to his private world when he agrees to let them make a film about him. The sharp-tongued and strongly opinionated Carr proves to be a fascinating subject as he discusses his philosophy, his working methods, and his feelings about his victims. However, the documentarians are goaded to move to the next level when Carr invites them to tag along as he pulls a few jobs, and they find themselves not merely documenting the actions of a thief but taking part in his life of crime. When Carr disappears during a robbery of a movie theater, the film crew is left wondering what to do and what has become of their protagonist. Deliberately blurring the line between truth and fiction, Street Thief's co-director Malik Bader also stars as Kaspar Carr.
