“The Forecaster plays like a slickly elaborate sketch for a future Hollywood retelling in the Wolf of Wall Street mold.”

IDFA Review by Neil Young

“The Forecaster Is a Compelling Doc of Financial Espionage.

Village Voice Review by Chris Packham

World Premiere

22. November 2014 at IDFA Competition for Feature-Length Documentary

Starting at a very young age, Martin Armstrong displayed an entrepreneurial spirit and an analytical ability that were far more developed than others. As a child he was already collecting coins and before long he would be trading in gold. As an adult, he started the company Princeton Economics International. Based on a self-designed model, in which the mysterious number Pi plays an integral role, he was able to calculate developments in the world economy. His predictions about stock crises or currency problems were eerily accurate, and he built up a clientele that consisted of powerful players in the global economy. All this made him a lot of money, but also more and more enemies in high places. In 1999, the FBI was on his doorstep, and he ended up in prison on charges of fraud and conspiracy without ever being tried in court. In 2012, he suddenly reappeared in public life, and he shares his pessimistic views on the disastrous developments in the world. In the film he tells his remarkable story, supported by archive footage and interviews with his mother, former employees and customers. It’s a story that reads a lot like a film script.   Martin Armstrong will be present at each film screening in Amsterdam.

Controversial economist Martin Armstrong is the focus of Marcus Vetter’s German documentary, world-premiering in competition at the Dutch festival

Miscarriage-of-justice documentaries are a dime a dozen these days, but few can boast the global sweep or geopolitical context of Marcus Vetter’s English-language German production The Forecaster. An unambiguously partisan profile of controversial economics whiz Martin Armstrong — who spent a decade in jail on technicalities relating to fraud charges — it plays like a slickly elaborate sketch for a future Hollywood retelling in the Wolf of Wall Street mold.
World-premiering in the main competition at IDFA, the blandly titled but discussion-provoking and decidedly topical glimpse into the arcane mysteries of high finance should pick up its share of festival play and TV exposure. The latter format will of course cramp one of the picture’s strong suits, namely Georg Zengerling’s wide-screen cinematography, which consistently adds color and excitement to what could easily have been a dry affair.

Hopping locations from Bangkok, where we first meet Armstrong in amusing consultation with a fortune-teller, to New York, Australia and beyond, Vetter and co-director Karin Steinberger craft an accessible and palatable package, which is careful to remain on the right side of comprehensibility. Indeed, a recurring refrain is that Armstrong’s computer-generated models for predicting economic cycles  — involving the mathematical principles of pi  — are so complex and advanced that only Armstrong himself is capable of grasping their byzantine intricacies.
