The rise and fall of Bernie Madoff, whose Ponzi scheme bilked $65 billion from unsuspecting victims. From IMDB








“You can’t make a movie out of these facts unless you have the right actor playing Madoff — and, in Richard Dreyfuss, the filmmakers found the perfect guy. “Madoff” delivers the goods… It’s a chilling look at the rise and fall of a man whose greed knew no limits and unleashed a tide of misery.”

“In these heady days when the broadcast networks are suddenly taking risks, consider this return to the miniseries format one more risky investment that pays off. Madoff works as a comedy of greedy errors, and the credit for that goes to Richard Dreyfuss, who narrates the film and practically twinkles with delight each time he takes in a rich sucker.”

“It is always difficult to convey the intricacies of financial fraud on the screen, but “Madoff” does an exceptionally good job of it.”

“Dreyfuss is sensational as Madoff, a twinkle in his eye as he explains his “magic.” He’s a likable scoundrel at first, playing with his grandkids, reassuring his wife. The depths of his lying, his chutzpah, is almost beyond belief.”

“In terms of portraying the numerous subplots surrounding this story, “Madoff” is a pretty fair juggling act. As for making the tale actually spark to life, that’s a bit of prestidigitation that this straightforward account ultimately can’t muster.”
