Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer (2009)

Director: Alex Gibney. 117 min. Rated R. Documentary.

The curious point about this elaboration on the former New York Governor's scandalous affair with a high-end prostitute, is that a major portion of the documentary is an interview with Spitzer himself. So, does that mean Spitzer orchestrated this film, to redeem himself and set the stage for a future political comeback? Even if that is the case, the film is quite revealing (no pun intended) about the behind-the-scenes tactics that contribute to the rise and fall of a celebrity status politician - and on the sideline, how Ashley Dupree was actually a nobody in the whole affair.
