Bernie threw out all the record books and made a new one. I have never seen or imagined a person so slickly fit into the delusional susceptibilities of the social environment, so perfect in playing a part that was -- so revered and so utterly fake! It is the ultimate nihilist performance art. And, Bernie watchers (a fave alongside Enron for me), it is worthwhile to take the tack here: to hear the people who saw him in is incidental daily life (alongside his family). This is Bernie doing life, live. It is a sort of caricature, an extended musing on the vapidity possible for the ultra-rich Manhattanites of our day. Rarified castles in the sky, villas in France, perks flying around for all, completely insane, completely virulent, clueless regulators blithely wandering around, and when the whole thing pops, lives in all directions ruined (and not a little of their own wealth fantasies glinting but dying in their eyes, which he played on so -- easily) the guy just quietly walks off the stage, a slight, bland smirk on his face. Nobody could make this up. Oh, and the narrator is a little too TV-flashy-gee-whiz for me. I don't need hyperactive vocal chords over-amping a story.

It would have been awesome if there was more story from Madoff's perspective but I can imagine he's not really in a talking mood. Still good though.
