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

Must-See Documentary
25 January 2014 | by AngelaCarroll9See all my reviews

I'm not an attorney or finance guru but a person that is fascinated by financial crime stories. Let's face it-this was a BIG one. I recommend this documentary if you're interested in understanding the "why" of Marc Dreier's fraud and the economic environment that helped to create his empire. Thus, you will gain some insight into the 2008 financial crisis.

I couldn't help but like Marc Dreier as I watched him engage with his son and dog. His rise & fall was thought-provoking and had me asking myself: Would I ever do the same given the opportunity? What would stop me- virtue(I hope) or the fear of being caught? Also-the injected animations were well-done(similar to comic book)and the irony was not lost on me via our economic climate.
