About the Movie

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 hundreds of millions of dollars from hedge funds. Brazen forgeries and impersonations branded the white-collar crime spree remarkable. "Unraveled" is set in the "purgatory" of house arrest in 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 portrait of a man who achieved the distinction he so desperately craved, but not for his keen intellect or ambition, but as a “mastermind of criminal deception."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Like the Upper East Side penthouse in which it unfolds, the documentary "Unraveled" is cool and elegant, echoing with spaces for our imaginations to fill. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 12, 2012

Rotten: How he lost his way is really never sufficiently explained, making the decision to cast Dreier as the central narrator of his own tale highly questionable. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Apr 16, 2012

Fresh: One moment Dreier is proclaiming his regret, the next he's drawing a bankrupt analogy between fictional bank robbers and the crimes he committed in "so-called reality." – Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times, Apr 12, 2012

Fresh: The fascinating human portrait that emerges should draw appreciative if limited audiences. – Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 20, 2011

Great Documentary

A sad story about when greed overcomes judgment. Dreier was a great litigator who succumbed to his demons. Those interested in white collar crime will be very interested in this film.

Stunning -like a thriller

I was glued to my seat for this DOCUMENTARY! That never happens. A very interesting story, expertly told, with some cool animation to help the storytelling along.

Captivating story

We really enjoyed the story and way Drier's story telling was weaved in and out. Great doc!
