Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) presents this slickly produced, entertaining and revelatory probe inside the corrupting influence of money in modern politics. Specifically, Gibney exhaustively illustrates how Jack Abramoff was not some rogue ber-lobbyist who emerged from obscurity to sully Capitol Hill. Instead, he was just one of the conservative foot soldiers in the Reagan Revolution who eventually gorged at the trough of greed afforded by their rise to power. Gibney's film is astute and cautionary. And, like any good potboiler, you cannot stop watching even though you know how the story is going to end.
