Storyline

In 2012, Crundwell was arrested as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in the nation's history, embezzling upwards of $50 million as the comptroller and treasurer of Dixon, a city in the heart of Illinois. Rita Crundwell became one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeders, traveled the world, and threw lavish parties, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and leaving public infrastructure in disrepair. All the Queen's Horses aims to illuminate this landmark case and bring to light the blatant negligence of auditors and bankers the public relied on to keep their tax dollars safe.

A Winner !
27 August 2018 | by spam-03479See all my reviews

I was quite happy to see this film pop up on Netflix and was anxious to view it after remembering the initial breakout of the story on the Internet and never hearing anything further about what happened to the woman. But my girlfriend checked IMDB, read me the review by 'heathrocksla' and we quickly decided to take a pass on it. Oddly enough, the very next day my girlfriend suddenly remembered a hair salon appointment she had made and I was stuck at her place alone with nothing to do, so, I decided to take a chance on the film. And I'm sure glad I did! I kept waiting for the annoying issues that 'heathrocksla' fumed about to show up but they never really did. What unfolded was an excellent documentary, well written, well paced, well researched and most enjoyable to watch. Yes, there was a scene where the subject being interviewed suddenly pushed himself forward in his chair and the camera operator had to refocus, but it was quickly done and the interview continued without incident. And, yes, again, the filmmaker did have a few shots of herself as a 'talking head' but I'm sure after preparing to make the movie she had become a worthwhile, knowledgeable expert on the subject matter, knew what she was talking about and was quite 'easy on the eyes' to boot, so, what's the big deal? In short - All the Queen's Horses is a fine, clear, concise, professionally produced documentary that is well worth your time and energy to watch - Please don't short change it because of one unfair review.
