Chasing Madoff

Genre: Documentary

Director: Jeff Prosserman

Stars: Harry Markopolos

Rate: ** 1/2

 

Recounting the struggle of whistleblower Harry Markopolos and his 10-year attempt to expose Bernie Madoff’s multibillion-dollar scandal, this highly-stylized documentary draws on noir-like black and white dramatizations that seemingly attempt to turn nerdy number-crunchers into Cold War killers. Instead, the device unnecessarily distracts and hyperbolizes a frightening and compelling tale of injustice.
