This documentary feature takes an in-depth look 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 Americas 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, Spitzers meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer - the paragon of rectitude - had been caught seeing prostitutes. As his powerful enemies gloated, his supporters questioned the timing of it all: as the Sheriff fell, so did the financial markets, in a cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy. With unique access to the escort world as well as friends, colleagues and enemies of the ex-Governor (many of whom have come forward for the first time) the film explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.

Gibney attempts to prove that Spitzer's fall was, in effect, a political assassination akin almost to the actual one of JFK although in this case orchestrated by the Wall Street executives whom Spitzer had alienated whilst New York State Attorney-General between 2001 and 2007 and makes a consistent argument for this in the course of the film where more attention is paid to the shady dealings on Wall Street rather than the equally shady dealings in the Emperor's Club (the name of the "escort" service which Spitzer patronised) and it is clear which Gibney finds the more interesting.
One of the chief virtues of the film is the use of interviewees including former members of Spitzer's staff, his enemies including Hank Greenberg and the former Republican Majority Leader in the New York State Senate, Joe Bruno and, above all Spitzer himself, who shows considerably more insight into the reasons for his downfall than Gibney does.Read more ›
None of the people portrayed are flawless but all are human and that's what makes it interesting. It seems to me that Spitzer is a huge loss to politics and I hope he makes a return, yes his character is flawed but at least he is trying to do something positive unlike the majority of politicians who are a bunch self-serving, gravy train riding reactionaries. If you disagree... name a good politician... tick tock tick tock the clock is counting. No answer?

This film covers the life and career of Eliot Spitzer, who was born in 1959. He was Attorney General of New York for eight years (1999-2007) and Governor of New York for less than one year (2007-2008). Because he was a public person, his private life was also scrutinized by the media: he married Silda Wall in 1987 and he has three daughters. In 2013, three years after this film was released, he announced that his marriage to Silda had ended.
While he served as attorney general, he was known as “the Sheriff of Wall Street,” because he was going after big bankers if he thought they were breaking the law. When he became governor of New York, he continued this approach, which some people found too aggressive.
In March 2008, shortly after beginning his term as governor, he resigned, because he was involved in a sex scandal concerning an escort service. While identified as “Client 9” in the indictment against the people who had run the escort service, he was never arrested and never charged with any crime.
More than twenty witnesses - including friends and enemies, as well as Spitzer himself - were interviewed for the film.Read more ›
