Madoff: Season 1 ()


Season 1
Madoff

Critics Consensus

Madoff boasts a knockout performance from Richard Dreyfuss, whose obvious enjoyment of the role helps make up for the miniseries' surplus of polish and overall lack of perspective.

    The powerful and gripping true story re Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme. Richard Dreyfuss does a spectacular job portraying Madoff, and he carries the show on his back. The mini series asks important questions that arise from a tragedy like this. This is the best Madoff "documentary" out there.

    Great performances by an A-list cast. Tragic story for the victims.

    Great!! Dreyfuss narative essential to understanding the complex stock market.

    It's the acting that makes this show worth watching. Richard Dreyfuss plays Madoff with an evil, impish charm and Blythe Danner as Ruth Madoff, is a real standout as the women who stood by him almost until the end. It's a powerful indictment of the greed of the American rich and the ignorance of the American financial system what allowed this horrible story to actually occur.

    Great casting - excellent acting and writing. Can't figure out why the "pro" critics didn't like it. Learned about what happened - Dreyfuss showed us the appeal (you have to have appeal if you're going to steal billions of dollars!) of the man and the sleaziness - no easy thing to do! Seems as though it ought to have been obvious to everyone around him - but he was a sociopath, and sociopaths are the best at keeping people involved and engaged with them as they steal them blind - or beat the bejeesus out of them (ask many battered women) It's truly one the things that hindsight is the only sight. Except for the one who saw there were no clothes - and no one wanted to believe him. Another point made, maybe not strongly enough! - was that all the big banks and investment companies that failed did exactly what Bernie did - but no one at all (except Michael Moore) seemed to get it. All around, something not to be missed.
