It was good, but I would have liked if it went more into the motivations behind Spitzer's escapades. I guess that's why you read the books!

Interesting movie about how he was brought down. I think he was doing his job, but ruffling feathers and his career was destroyed by powerful people who wanted him out for their own personal gain. Just goes to prove if you are in politics you better have a squeaky clean life style.

very interesting to watch - I find it funny when men in "power" (in elected positions) behave as if they are untouchable, only to get caught doing stupid &/or unnecessary stuff

This was a pretty good documentary. Lots of dirty politics and talk of the prostitution business. It was long (it clocked in a little over 2 hours) but overall informative.

It's all about money, sex, power, and betrayal.

The film explores the hidden contours of the story (of Eliot Spitzer, a one-time rising star of New York politics) of hubris, sex, and power.
