Critic Reviews for The Wizard of Lies
It's not a terrible piece of work, but the most you can claim for it is a kind of bloodless competence.
The Wizard of Lies is a movie with a terrible name and some mediocre aspects. But great central performances from two icons of the silver screen make it necessary watching.
What Wizard of Lies lacks in terms of a broader historical span is compensated for by telling Madoff's tale as a classical tragedy about hubris and human cost - only in this case we watch as the villain's wife and children take the brunt of the toll.
[The Wizard of Lies] achieves its greatest power as a character study.
As Ruth, Pfeiffer convincingly portrays a pampered woman left with utterly nothing - she's lost her homes, status and, most important, her relationship with her sons.
