Movies: Who is Kaspar Carr – Street Thief February 20, 2010

If you have a Netflix account just click here.

That said, it’s a documentary about a Chicago thief by the name of Kaspar Carr. Carr agreed to let the documentary makers film his exploits. About mid-way through the movie though Carr decides to hit a nightclub. It’s totally off his M.O. He only cased the place for three days and even the filmmakers were a little weirded out by his cavalier attitude.

When Carr does the nightclub job he’s all weird. The guy is a professional thief, has all the gear, the knowledge, etc. But this again is out of character.

He does one more job with the filmmakers, he hits a movie theater for over $100,000. After this the filmmakers don’t hear from Kaspar. They go by his warehouse one day and there are police vehicles all over the place.

The filmmakers call every police district and none of them have Carr in custody.

Turns out they found Carr’s Mercedes-Benz with all the doors open, blood on the seat and ground, and his personal effects strewn on the ground nearby.

To this date they haven’t found his body. I should mention that the nightclub robbery was NEVER reported to the police and owned by a gentleman with a very Ukrainian name. I’m thinking Ukrainian or Russian Mob.

The eastern European and Russian mobs are a tad bit more malicious than the Italian mob of years ago. And it would fit entirely in their profile to disappear a person who has wronged them.

Now earlier in the film the filmmakers ask what he’d be if he wasn’t a thief. He tells them that’s all he wants to be is a thief. But a little later on he theorizes he could be a good cook.

Leads me to two theories:

1) Carr was murdered because he robbed the wrong nightclub.

or

2) Carr staged his own murder.

Either one has a high probability.

I just watched this movie last night and it is not a real documentary. The story is fiction with the main role played by the producer.

The man is not a real thief, he’s the producer of the film. And his name is Malik Bader or something like that. I got taken except I used to be a thief back in the 70’s and 80’s and I thought, Wow, the last thing I would have ever wanted would be a camera crew following me around. Also, I never did a job without a lookout, who was usually my brother or a close friend. No, I thought to myself, this is a fake, and when I researched it I found out he was a film producer. Incidently, I’m not a thief anymore.

I have to admit, this movie had me really believing it was a documentary. Only because the credits did NOT label any actors acting as a character. I felt so much towards Caspar that I told myself, if I find out he was locked up. I was gonna send commissary money to him. :) Sincerely. But here’s what has me not believing….The spelling of his name.
Kasper Carr? Or is it..Caspar Karr?? See the in the movie, when he was calling the police districts, he spelled his last name with a K and the movie title is spelled different.
Well If it is indeed a true story my heart goes out to him and his family.

Kaspar wasn’t played by the producer of the documentary, but by Malik Bader, still very much alive. You can see pictures of him at the screening at the Tribeca Film Fest.

8. Tripper - November 22, 2011

He probably staged his murder n feels out side the USA! I mean think bout it. He freaks out cuz the cam. Crew is in the night club watching him. Kasper prob had it all set up cuz he knew the club owner! kasper but he never told the club owner he was gonna hit his club n he found out didn’t report it cuz then the cops would already have motive n kasper

I mean fuck isn’t that what everyone is tring to to do make enough money so they have nothing to worry bout n can do anything

Documentary or not; I think the film is meant to lead you to believe he staged his own death. I think the name “Kasper Carr” is a play on words that foreshadows the ending. Has no one thought of kasper (like casper the ghost) and carr as in; leaving a ‘ghost car’ behind as the only evidence of his existence. Its like a fake name and it was ‘his’ (or the producers) grand scheme to pull the job and leaving nothing but a ‘kasper carr’ and a behind. Of course there were enough clues to lead you theorize in many directions about the ending. I thought it was a very fun and witty psychological movie.

it sure as hell was

11. Angelo - December 6, 2011

to add… The story is fiction for those who are unsure. I think the line on the over “Who is Kasper Carr?” is inspired by Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged” which constantly questions “Who is John Galt”. John Galt also happen to disappear from society to create a world for the forward thinkers (artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and alike). Ayn Rand used the line as a common figure of speech, and later in the book as literal question, I think the producer (and star) Malik wanted people to take this question initially as a question of ‘who is he as a person’ since he was clearly hiding himself on a deep personal level. And secondly, as a literal question which is meant to lead you to the answer that kasper carr is nobody. its a setup, the answer leads you play on words which was my whole premise on the movie as explained in my last post.

I came to the decision that he hit the biggest score of his career, staged his death because obviously “Slicks” was a big mistake, or was someone that he knew. Thats why he spazzed out on the camera crew. if you think back to when they were hunting, the blood left behind came from the deer or whatever the hell he wanted to shoot…leaving “real” blood at the scene. Remember He was always two steps ahead!

This movie isn’t real, it is a mocumentry, it is just supposed to look real, and obviously it worked on you.

14. caron - December 30, 2011

He staged his murder. Or his inside guy on the night club gave him up after alil pursuasion.

15. Seth Everett Bullock on face book - February 15, 2012

this is not a real documentry it is independent film you can find the story behind the movie at this web site and pictures of Malik Bader http://archives.record-eagle.com/2006/aug/03ff-bader.htm

16. Seth Everett Bullock on face book - February 15, 2012

this was a great movie however i wish it would have been real but even though it’s not it still give it 4.5 stars

17. jay - March 4, 2012

I think this fool made you guys think too hard he cut up his body in certain spots to frame his murder now he is in Mexico drinking on the beach I had a good conversation with him he made 97000 off that night club everybody is so suspicious about oh and I can’t say his real name but it is not Kaspersky Carr

18. rmc - April 30, 2012

Damn… this movie had me feeling like I could do a burgulry and get away with it too.Learn alittle something everyday.

Rodney - May 7, 2012

but the time behind all those jobs. and staying up all night… I couldn’t do it

19. Mary Willimans - December 10, 2012

rmc – what’s more authentic is the guy sitting in prison then working in a diner. No free lunch eh?

20. robocop - April 10, 2013

its A FAKE! remember when “Kasper” wrote how much money he was getting.. thats not important but the way he wrote it, with his hand. Now look at the producer when he calling all the police stations looking for “Kasper” it’s funny how he writes in the same style manner they way “Kasper” did. (check it out).

21. Jask - November 8, 2013

The docu wasn’t real, but came really close to the real thing. I’ve been a safe cracker for a couple of years and I must say. This came really close to the real thing, even the guy telling about that you have to take a shit when you hit a place. That also happend to me almost every time.
It where the credits that gave it away for me. The producer and the first name in the credits where the same.
All in all a very good film. I would almost start doing it again. The tensions and addictions are addictive…..

22. yoboi - February 1, 2014

whether real or not it was a good film about burglary, everything he talked about doing was 100% true and will work for anybody so if you want to find out plan a job. It’s obvious he staged his death a couple cuts for blood and there you have it, the whole Russian club theory was just to take the attention away from the staged death that guy had nothing to do with it, collateral damage that’s all. The only reason he didn’t want the camera crew asking what he would do if not being a thief, he knew he couldn’t reveal what he would eventually be doing with his life after the final score?????
