What a waste of a moment. A documentary exploring the Gardner Museum robbery, featuring a 75 year old stolen art detective who wears a bowler, eye patch and has been battling skin cancer for 50 years, and the damn thing is film with hand-held digital video cameras. At least they knew enough to properly wire the microphones. The characters involved with the recovery effort, the interviews they got with experts, the travel they did to find out more, and the thing feels like a student film out of a second rate college. A huge disappointment, a waste of an amazing story.
