documentary about marc dreier who bilked citizens out of $400 million in an extremely large ponzi scheme. it chronicles his days leading up to sentencing as he reflects on the things he did and his life in general. there’s certainly a part of him that is in denial about how bad his crimes were. he’s not as bad as madoff, or whatever other lame rationalization he has about what he did. bottom line, the guy is an egotistic piece of shit and getting just 20 years is crazy. he lives a life of luxury in these days after being found guilty, but awaiting sentencing. to me this is just crazy as well. if he was a kidnapper or burglarer he wouldn’t be on house arrest with a paid armed guard wasting everyone’s money. instead, he’d be in jail – where he belongs. what a fucked up judicial system we have.
pretty good documentary.
