...you have to give Dreier style points; [even Bernie] Madoff never flew to Toronto to impersonate a representative of the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan...

As both man and metaphor, Drier is a pretty potent subject.

An intriguingly intimate portrait of someone who was convinced he wasn't destined to be one of the little people - and paid the price for trying to prove otherwise.

One moment Dreier is proclaiming his regret, the next he's drawing a bankrupt analogy between fictional bank robbers and the crimes he committed in "so-called reality."

Like the Upper East Side penthouse in which it unfolds, the documentary "Unraveled" is cool and elegant, echoing with spaces for our imaginations to fill.

Marc H. Simon's documentary has the thrust of a great American noir or black comedy.

The fascinating human portrait that emerges should draw appreciative if limited audiences.

Unraveled is a con job. It has the clammy hands of its crooked main figure all over it. Unraveled is a prime example of why one sometimes should be skeptical of a documentary.

In allowing Dreier to shape his own narrative, too many lame excuses are allowed to pass, as the financial schemer spins his own story dangerously close to self-pity.

It's a fascinating fishbowl in concept, yet Simon's storytelling is unevenly textured and oddly listless-fatal for a film about a banal document-pushing felon clock-watching to a known outcome.

How he lost his way is really never sufficiently explained, making the decision to cast Dreier as the central narrator of his own tale highly questionable.
