Alex Gibney, maker of such documentaries as Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Dark Side, and Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, wants us to know the full story behind Jack Abramoff, the mega-lobbyist caught with his hand in the wrong pocket. So Gibney tells it, and tells it, and tells it – with all the sordid details involving Tom DeLay and other legislators, Indian casinos, overseas sweatshops, the government of Malaysia, etc. As Gibney sees it, to Abramoff the buying and selling of politicians was the free market in action, with money and power as the goals. Gibney’s doc is a bit hampered by the non-participation of one-time College Republican Abramoff, serving prison time for bribing public officials, but it’s worth seeing for big-league-corruption fans. For anyone else, it’s a numbing experience (122 min.).
