Synopsis

The Wizard of Lies :-Watch The Wizard of Lies on 123moviestvshow.com,A look behind the scenes at Bernie Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme, how it was perpetrated on the public and the trail of destruction it left in its wake, both for the victims and Madoff’s family.I was really looking forward to this. I thought this was going to be great. Robert DeNiro, HBO, Michelle Pfeffier, a very interesting story about one of the most successful conmen in our country, how could this go wrong? Unfortunately, it does from the beginning. The problem with this movie is that the writing puts it down a path that is uninteresting. We don’t learn much about Madolff, his family or why he got to where he is today. Instead, it’s a series of interviews Madolff has with a NY Times writer while in prison. The story is told in a mix of flash forwards and flashbacks, never developing much of a rhythm. I started getting bored with the slow dialogue and unfolding of scenes that really didn’t tell me much at all. Hank Azaria plays a great villain, but why do we need to hear 10 minutes of a disgusting joke to get that point? There’s just no build up or conclusion. What we get is a man who knows what he did was wrong and keeping it from his unlikable family. I had no sympathy. The Madolff scandal is a very interesting story, it’s too bad it wasn’t told in an interesting, thought provoking way.
