This portrait of Washington super lobbyist Jack Abramofffrom his early years as a gungho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariahconfirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. A tale of international intrigue with Indian casinos, Russian spies, Chinese sweatshops, and a mobstyle killing in Miami, this is the story of the way money corrupts our political process. Oscarwinning filmmaker Alex Gibney once again wields the tools of his trade with the skill of a master. Following the ongoing indictments of federal officials and exposing favor trading in our nation's capital, Gibney illuminates the way our politicians' desperate need to get electedand the millions of dollars it costsmay be undermining the basic principles of American democracy. Infuriating, yet undeniably fun to watch, Casino Jack and the United States of Money is a saga of greed and corruption with a cynical villain audiences will love to hate.
