  • At times "The Scheme" goes so deep into the weeds it's tough to keep track of all the characters and the web of corruption, though some charts and graphics prove to be helpful.

  • Dawkins is a fascinating subject, and there's filmmaking skill in how they get him to open up for the first time and detail everything that happened.

  • The Scheme is as fascinating as it is illuminating, and the stories and investigations that probably should follow it might be even more so.
