A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
Documentary on the rise of Eliot Spitzer, first as Attorney General and then Governor of New York and his subsequent downfall due to a sex scandal. Spitzer had a hard driving, take no prisoners approach to prosecuting criminals. When he focused his efforts on Wall Street, he came up against some very powerful men. The chink in his armor was an escort whom he met regularly. When the fact that he spent time with a prostitute became public the knives came out so to speak, and Spitzer found himself isolated, resigning the Governorship. At one point, Spitzer recounts the story of a friend who gave him a t-shirt with 'Hubris is Terminal' printed on the front. A fitting epitaph somehow for his political career. Written by
First of all, this documentary is so well done that I have to say that it raises the bar.
This director has "got it down". Awesome.
Second, and just as important, is that this story will astound you. The level of corruption is worse and more systemized that i had even imagined, and unlike many conspiracy-style documentaries, this one is a fact and that is what makes it so powerful. Not to be missed.
This movie is tremendously insightful to all Americans who want to take an inside look into what is really going on out there in the world. The level of corruption that this movie hints at is so enormous that it boggles the mind.
Elliot for president.
