The story of how Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff rose to power and subsequently fell from grace is fascinating enough as a study in the disruptive power of money and how it so effortlessly undermines the American democratic process. But by plucking out the scandalous events surrounding Abramoff, including million—dollar swindle schemes, mob—style murder, and trips to the Marianas Islands to interfere with international labour laws, this spy—like drama is almost too bizarre to be believed. With careful structuring of the fantastic material, Oscar—winning director Alex Gibney navigates us through the political circus while Abramoff drives a clown car of offences. Watching in disbelief as the crimes spill out could be funny if the stakes were a little less high. — Sarafina DiFelice
