An interesting documentary that doesn't really clarify the Madoff Affair, however, it is heavy on the "How could this happen?" side of things. Attempting to blame many folks, including the SEC, and portraying the entire Financial Industry as a bunch of hucksters and Confidence Men.

I enjoyed it as an entertaining story, but not heavy on analysis, mostly finger pointing.
