Casino Jack and the United States of Money

Lobbyists have long played a role in U.S. politics, but the 2006 scandal of Republican super lobbyist Jack Abramoff revealed just how much power they can hold. This compelling documentary chronicles Abramoff's rise and fall from his early days in the GOP to his four-year prison sentence and investigates the often bizarre story of how his political and financial ambitions took root. Director Alex Gibney (Enron, Taxi to the Dark Side) sheds light on the dark side of Washington in which money and power trump all. Official selection at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
