Editorial Reviews

At approximately 8:30am on December 11th, 2008 two federal agents entered the New York City penthouse of 133 East 64th Street and arrested Bernard Madoff, the admitted mastermind behind the largest act of financial fraud in world history. Ten years prior, Boston based securities analyst Harry Markopolos discovered that Bernard L. Madoff Securities was a Ponzi scheme.
 
Based on the New York Times best-seller No One Would Listen, CHASING MADOFF is the compelling story of how Markopolos and his team of investigators pieced together a chain of white-collar predators and revealed some of the most frightening truths behind the infamous scandal.

By Liv
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although this was probably a low budget film, it is something most people should see. It is mindboggling that the offices who should have discovered the fraud did not, including the media. it seems they were afraid of powerful people in high places.I am glad I purcased this film from Amazon

Very interesting and informing from the point of view of an actual victim. Since it affected me and my family directly, we were glued to the TV. Madoff destroyed so many lives, and the sad part is that it could have been avoided.

Just go watch the free Frontline documentary on Madoff if you want to know how Madoff got away with things. Watching this, you'll just get to see and hear endless clips of Markopolos acting like he thinks his life is a financial services version of the Sopranos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hopeful Film That is Needed! August 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Harry Markopolos, 'is no hero' - these are his words.

Having served in the military, and experiencing the ambiguity and moral failure of contemporary life, I too struggle with questions of 'right and wrong' in the context of business.

This documentary describes a kind of man that is rare these days - quiet, thoughtful, loving, good and brave. If you have given up on the American business man and believe that the Wallstreet crowd is rotten to the core, then know this - Harry Markopolos exists, his story is true and we can hope there are more men and women like him.

The documentary itself is different from others I have viewed on the 'Madoff Affair'. I, personally, have a deep interest in the macroeconomic and systemic failures that were background to the Madoff incident, but the Madoff story is part of the general failure of American finance in the 2 decades that led up to 2008 - and, frankly, this same corruption persists today.

A core question, which the film keeps in the background throughout, is the following: 'why didn't anyone at the SEC take action?'. This question is difficult, because we have been led to believe, in the modern era that 'regulation and regulatory agencies keep us safe'. But I suspect the answer is more obvious and frightening: Madoff was an extraordinary and evil 'shark' in waters filled with criminals and 'sharks'. If Madoff's scheme was a moral outrage, then what do we say of Goldman-Sachs and its 'guarantee' that allowed Greece to enter the EUROZONE in the early 2000's? I digress, but I fear the reason for the SEC ignoring Mr. Markopolos is because ANY dent in the presumed 'genius' and 'professionalism' of WALLSTREET threatened all of the crooks.

Where this story is strongest is in fusing the 'character story' of Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Markopolos for head of the SEC December 31, 2013
Format:DVD
Everyone should watch this documentary, even if you think you're familiar with the Madoff story.
The media did not report on a lot of the details, and there are things here that you may not have not heard before.
The main thing is that the Madoff Ponzi scheme was much bigger than most people realize; it was truly global in scope and people all the way up to many European royal families (and perhaps Prince Charles) were affected.
Also, Madoff did not act alone. He kept the smallest slice of the pie for himself and made sure that all the feeder funds made big money. There was also offshore or "dark" money invested in Madoff's scheme.

Because of this, Markopolos had valid reason to fear for his life.

Also, prior to watching this documentary, I was not aware of the story of Thierry de la Villehuchet, which was tragic. Markopolos seems to think he was involved with head-hunting for Bernie, while Harry's colleague Frank Casey believes Thierry was an honorable man who got duped like everyone else. Either way, it was sad to hear how he despaired and took his own life when the scheme came crashing down.
Also the story that Frank Casey tells of "Abe" and his failed attempt to warn his new wife and father-in-law to not invest was sobering and sad to hear.
Saddest of all is that almost no one listened to Markopolos and his colleagues; the economy is what brought Madoff down. Even though Markopolos was invited to testify before Congress, and received praise from some representatives, you could tell he was not a welcome guest there; but they finally had to listen to him since the scheme had blown up due to the financial collapse.

2.0 out of 5 stars great story, dissapointing doc November 6, 2012
Format:DVD
I was actually hoping for more on Madoff himself than to hear again just how frightened the whistle-blower was with more than a couple of filmed references to his children who are sweet but it felt like feather-bedding. I may not watch it again and I own it!.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it June 30, 2012
By Trim
Format:DVD
Important story, but this movie should have been made a 20 min documentary. The attempt to make this into a superhero story just work against it. Would prefer to watch a unbiased re-caption of the issue. Not worth watching the whole thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing to say the least June 1, 2012
Format:DVD
Compelling and infuriating. Mr. Markopolos and his associates were calling attention to Madoff's fraud a decade before charges were ever brought. The SEC and the media is largely damned as well, for really doing nothing until Madoff's house of cards collapsed around him. These people can be respected for the work they've done, and the documentary spells out their chain of evidence in a way that's easily grasped for those of us who aren't financially inclined. One very small quibble: did the editor really have to resort to quick cut edits periodically?
