Loved it. A fascinating look into an unbelievable man.
24 October 2016 | by raiderceballosSee all my reviews

Wow, simply blown away by this insightful documentary. Better than anything on Netflix. Better than Cocaine Cowboys! It's true what they say -- life is stranger than fiction. When I thought the story was gonna go left, it went right. Traficant's first trial riveted me. The FBI had Jimbo's signed confession and the tapes and he still beat the system! You did such a terrific job at showing all sides of this once-in-a-lifetime man. He truly was an enigma -- part good, part bad, full bluster always and forever. As stunned as I was at the crazy things Traficant did, I was also -- and this is a tribute to the film's chops -- saddened by how much natural talent he wasted. Also, I stopped counting how many times I laughed out loud -- but it was easily north of 25. This man and this film are flat-out hilarious. Perhaps the best thing I can say is this: The film is as good as Traficant's life was unbelievable. Can't recommend this enough! A must watch!
