Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer

This documentary feature takes explores at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.

Nicknamed "The Sheriff of Wall Street," 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 -- the paragon of rectitude -- had been caught seeing prostitutes. The film explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.

Eliot Spitzer

Omar is disillusioned about the treatment of Muslims around the world and is determined to become a soldier. This is the most exciting idea Waj has ever heard. Opposed to Omar and everyone else on earth is the white islamic convert Barry. He'd realize he joined the cell to channel his nihilism -- if he had half the self knowledge of a duck. Faisal is the odd man out. He can make a bomb -- but he can't blow himself up just now coz his sick dad has "started eating newspaper." Instead he's training crows to fly bombs through windows. This is what Omar has to deal with.

Nothing opening today appeals to me, but I'm very interested in seeing Morning Glory. Maybe I'll try to get a Girls' Night Out going for it.
