Movie Summary

Director:
Alex Gibney (I)
Released:
2010
Rating:
R
This portrait of Washington super lobbyist Jack Abramoff -- from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah -- confirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. A tale of international intrigue with Indian casinos, Russian spies, Chinese sweatshops, and a mob-style killing in Miami, this is the story of the way money corrupts our political process. Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney once again wields the tools of his trade with the skill of a master. Following the ongoing indictments of federal officials and exposing favor trading in our nation's capital, Gibney illuminates the way our politicians' desperate need to get elected -- and the millions of dollars it costs -- may be undermining the basic principles of American democracy. Infuriating, yet undeniably fun to watch, CASINO JACK is a saga of greed and corruption with a cynical villain audiences will love to hate.
