(US / 2010 / dir by Alex Gibney)
In his new film, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex (Taxi to The Dark Side Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) Gibney follows the money to reveal how lobbying distorts American democracy.
Gibney focuses on the rise and fall of disgraced Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff. It’s a surprising tale in which charming con men use the power of the purse, the zealotry of religion and bare-knuckled political brawling to loot the American government for fun, ideology and personal profit. Revealing our broken system of lobbying and campaign finance, the film may play like a comedy, but the joke is, alarmingly, on us.
R / 120 mins.
