The casefile remains open, but this considered investigation matches the Panthers' bravura with an organisational flair of its own.
[The] excursions into moral and sociological themes are what makes "Smash and Grab" so intriguing, and what separate it from a kind of "Ocean's Eleven"-style verite.
The world's most successful ring of diamond thieves is inventively and insightfully explored in the documentary "Smash and Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers."
Havana Marking's imaginatively made documentary is a gripping portrait of a daring international jewel-theft ring.
The doc breezily sketches out the process of casing, smashing, grabbing, escaping, and fencing, not in as much detail as David Samuels's stellar New Yorker piece on the Panthers a couple years back, but with some added pathos.
Using real-life surveillance footage and interviews with several of the gang's members themselves, this eerily timely true-crime documentary fascinates.
Genuinely captivating and intriguing, Smash and Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers puts together a remarkable tale that goes past simply judging it's subjects, and tries to find their motivation, without ever rationalizing what they've done.
It's pacey and often exhilarating. And also strikingly timely.
A delightful documentary that dances along the edge between intellectual think-piece and ring-a-ding, Ocean's-style criminal lifestyle celebration.
Smash and Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers is entertaining and insightful. A must see.
The film will more than scratch an itch for heist film fans waiting for the next Topkapi, Rififi, or The Thomas Crown Affair.
Havana Marking's documentary ... purports to be a true-life detailing of such felons, but is far less engaging, And due to certain directorial choices, it also comes across as somewhat factually dubious.
