Client 9
When he was NY's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America's largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as governor, with the largest margin in the state's history, many believed Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation's first Jewish president. Then, shockingly, Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer had been caught seeing prostitutes.

Spitzer built a career pursuing billionaire scoundrels and their corrupt political cronies -- then handed them the knife they stuck in his back. A sleazy mess all around.

excellent insight into how spitzer created powerful enemies who couldn't resist the opportunity to destroy his career. wonder if spitzer as governor (and advancing politician) could have helped us avoid the global financial crisis.

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.
