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

The ego has landed...behind bars!
13 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Multi million dollar white collar thief Marc Drier gets 80 minutes to justify himself in this film, made in the run-up to his sentencing. The fact that Drier stole a huge amount of money doesn't make him proportionately evil, but he comes across as a difficult man to like, someone whose sense of ego and self-entitlement might, you think, have led him to commit any crime if the trade off of risk and reward was sufficiently large. Although the film is a kind of apology, an Drier affects at honesty, what shines through is that this is a person who thinks altogether too much of himself to ever be truly socialised. His twenty year sentence, which ends the film, was probably about right; but it's a bit of a stretch watching this film in which we get continuously exposed to Drier's special pleading without anyone who got hurt telling the other side of the story.
