A must-see documentary, mind-blowing by it's content, which is sadly hurt by a messy construction and an over-the-top melodramatic tone. The story being told was already powerful enough to spare some intense close-ups or reenactments. TheA must-see documentary, mind-blowing by it's content, which is sadly hurt by a messy construction and an over-the-top melodramatic tone. The story being told was already powerful enough to spare some intense close-ups or reenactments. The Filmmaker's choice to solely focus on the "hunters team" and thus telling so little about Madoff himself was a brave one that turns out to pay off, as it helps create this mystical and unreal status Madoff did enjoy during the decade preceding his fall.

This movie made no sense. Jeff Prosserman's misunderstanding of the story, characters and the event is perplexing.

Jeff Prosserman's misunderstanding of the story, characters and the event is perplexing. The cheesy, overdone, superfluous effects paired with the knock-off Phillip Glass score (the film's only savior) makes this noir documentary a bad comedy. It's a shame too, the idea is a good one. The director: not such a good one. Expand
