True to life story about a narcissistic sociopath.
3 March 2018 | by jhrippedSee all my reviews

The story behind this film is one that could be told in so many different ways.

If you know anything about the sociopath that is Barry Minkow, you'll recognize that Bruce Caulk (Director) did an excellent job capturing the essence of what it's like to be in the presence of someone that literally has zero empathy, and no moral compass.

While the film plays like a reenacted documentary due to voice overs from various narrators being woven throughout, I found myself drawn in and wondering how it was all going to wind up.

With a "Catch Me if You Can" type of flow to the plot, I was engaged the entire film.

If you're into Wall Street scandal genre flicks, you'll definitely want to check this one out.
