Chasing Madoff

JOY REVIEW

Chasing Madoff is a really terrific documentary about a group of three men. Harry Markopolos, Neil Chelo, and Frank Casey, who are eventually joined by another man and a woman, who spent a decade trying to get the SEC to notice that Bernie Madoff was a thief, liar, and con man. And this is more an indictment, I mean certainly of Madoff, but more of the SEC, which is just shocking. I happened to see this on the day that the stock market plunged 632 points, so it did not reassure me that all will be well. This is a terrific documentary that’s got passion, bad guys, good guys, threats, thrills, chills; It’s really terrific. Four and a half stars.
