Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This captivating account and analysis of one of the most notorious crimes in history reminds viewers that honesty is the best policy. Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street, with its dark filters and slow-motion dramatic reenactments, conveys the gravity of the crime that Bernie Madoff executed over the course of decades. The episodes are fast-paced and loaded with information, so binge-watching is most likely not the best way to watch. But the issues uncovered – from ethics and oversight to greed and fraud – are sure to expose (and potentially reshape) thoughts on white-collar crime and its impact on society.
