Storyline

Just days before Bernard Madoff captured headlines as the largest ponzi schemer in U.S. history, Marc Dreier, a prominent Manhattan attorney, was arrested for orchestrating a massive fraud scheme that netted over 700 Million Dollars from hedge funds. Brazen forgeries and impersonations branded the white collar crime spree remarkable. "Unraveled" is set in the "purgatory" of house arrest, an upper East Side penthouse, where the Court has ordered Dreier confined until his sentencing day. The film weaves Dreier's struggle to prepare for the possibility of life imprisonment with first-person flashbacks, which reveal his audacious path of destruction. Destroyed by his own hubris, Dreier attempts to grasp his tragic unraveling. With unprecedented access, "Unraveled" exposes a mastermind of criminal deception. Written by Anonymous

Interesting, especially if you are a lawyer
28 August 2012 | by (Irvine, CA) – See all my reviews

I found this fascinating, but not fun. It was like watching a train wreck. I may have been more interested because I am an attorney. Specifically, as a civil litigator who practiced as a CPA for years before becoming an attorney, I found the interaction between Drier and his attorneys and consultants fascinating. Likewise, the level of incompetence on the parts of others that was necessary for him to get away with his scheme was just amazing.

While watching Drier, the questions of "what was he thinking" and "what is he thinking" are constantly in your mind. It's not clear whether he is remorseful or not. Drier clearly understands that what he did was wrong, but it is not clear that he is remorseful about anything except getting caught.

When you combine that with the post-conviction / pre-sentencing setting time frame of the conversations, it is strange and fascinating. Some of the the things that Drier is concerned about make sense, while others seem completely irrelevant given his circumstances.
