Eventually it starts to feel like a parody of an Errol Morris film.

When the officials getting paid to do the job failed miserably in their duties, it was the crazy guy who stood as the public's last and only line of defense

The heat is always on, the volume consistently turned all the way up, the whole thing a pile of more, more, more when a whole lot of less, less, less would have been far more effective.

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

Well constructed but standard-brand "outrage doc."

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

If you want a factual primer on Madoff's crimes, you should look elsewhere. But as a portrait of an unusual man, 'Chasing Madoff' is flawed but fascinating.

Viewers get very little about Madoff himself. While the film is primarily about Markopolos, it makes little sense without much insight into his nemesis.

A profile of Ponzi-scheme whistle-blowers who tried, for a decade, to interest the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Bernie Madoff's transparent and ruinous fraud scheme.

"Chasing Madoff" is not a very good documentary, but it's a very devastating one.

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.

A terrible documentary that has sheds very little on the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme scandal.

Markopolos goes on and on. . to seem monomaniacal. . . that any rational major investor should have suspected [but] he deserves his victory lap.

August 27, 2011
The film never proves that Madoff was in league with mobsters. It doesn't even detail a single threat against Markopolos, his family or his friends.

Chasing Madoff offers an object lesson in how to turn a potentially rich documentary into a cheap bag of melodramatic tricks.

The story is a fascinating one, but Proserman doesn't trust it to carry the film.
