Surprise. Bernie Madoff could be a prick who acted like he knew everything.
The trailer for “In God We Trust,” a documentary set to premiere soon at Tribeca Film Festival reveals this Madoff character flaw, hopefully one of many interesting facts the film will report.
The movie could have been called ‘The Trials of Eleanor Squillari.’ She was Madoff’s secretary for 25 years, and, like many who thought they knew Madoff, had no idea he was a thief that stole billions of dollars from financial investors.
“In God We Trust” works to document Squillari’s bid to regain some self-respect by figuring out what really happened. Was Madoff’s crime more complicated than just a Ponzi scheme? Was his a money laundering business too? (82 minutes, 2012, directed by Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson)
