Chasing Madoff

type
  • Movie

Jeff Prosserman’s riveting doc takes a question that haunted the Bernie Madoff scandal — how did he fool everyone for so long? — and answers it with a decisive ”He didn’t.” Borrowing the first-person flavor of Errol Morris, Prosserman builds his film around Harry Markopolos, the independent investigator who took all of five minutes (in 1999!) to figure out that Madoff was a fraud. But Madoff had so much power on Wall Street that no one (in media or the SEC) wanted to follow up. B+
