Movie Info

Chasing Madoff is the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigator's ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth behind the infamous Madoff scandal. Throughout the decade long investigation, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar predators consisting of bankers, lieutenants, and henchmen, all linked to the devastating Ponzi scheme. With risk and danger apparent, Markopolos and his loyal team relentlessly continued to pursue the frightening truth. Finding himself trapped in a web of epic deceit, the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigator now feared for his life and the safety of his family, as he discovered no one would listen. -- (C) Official Site

  • Prosserman wisely skirts the esoterica of high finance, though he cleverly uses good visual devices to suggest the shocking scope of Madoff's crimes.

  • If you're wondering why so many people are cynical about Wall Street, the government and the system in general, "Chasing Madoff" tells you.

  • The film may leave some viewers even more confused about the Madoff affair than they were in the first place.

    Sep 2, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Viewers get very little about Madoff himself. While the film is primarily about Markopolos, it makes little sense without much insight into his nemesis.

    Sep 1, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Chasing Madoff" is not a very good documentary, but it's a very devastating one.

    Sep 1, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The hero has a colorless, off-rhythm voice, dead eyes, disorderly hair. He's not, we gather, an imaginative man, but, a religious Greek Orthodox and a former Army officer, he's propelled by a strong sense of rectitude, an ethos of duty.
