Chasing Madoff - Review

Chasing Madoff | CHASING MADOFF Bernard Madoff, chairman of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, on the trading floor in New York, on Dec. 30, 1999

Jeff Prosserman's riveting doc takes a question that haunted the Bernie Madoff scandal — how did he fool everyone for so long? — and answers it with a decisive ''He didn't.'' Borrowing the first-person flavor of Errol Morris, Prosserman builds his film around Harry Markopolos, the independent investigator who took all of five minutes (in 1999!) to figure out that Madoff was a fraud.
