5 December 2006 | by (BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

A worthy effort, given the limitations of TV docudramas. It is well acted, and narrates to complex life and character of Conrad Black. Black is a personna of tragic resonance. Gifted in intellect, insight and discipline, brought to the precipice of impending bankruptcy and imprisonment by an overarching narcissism, arrogance and disdain for others, especially those unlucky enough to have worked for him.

Toronto residents will not only recognize the upper class environs of their city, but the parochial ambitions of its elite.. and the stuffy colonial quality of its clubs and boardrooms. It a cautionary tale of those who take their circumstances in life as divine license to step on the well being of others. That will only provide enemies with a thirst for revenge.
