Eliot Spitzer's Documentary Client 9

Client 9: Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Banks? Not Eliot Spitzer

The former New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer, had a life with all the makings of a realistically raw and heart-pounding film. It's no wonder that the documentary that captured moments of his rise and his downfall, Client 9, makes for a scintillating watch. When Eliot became the attorney general for New York, he became a crusader of justice for the people and dared to fight the big banks on Wall Street. But although he scored huge wins when he prosecuted the biggest financial institutions and executives, he made a couple of very powerful enemies along the way. Eliot's downfall was of his own making, and was one of the ultimate ironies. The man who stood up for the wronged was participating in a vice himself — Eliot had been hiring call girls on the sly.

I must admit, hearing about the schemes some of these powerful companies cooked up made me very uneasy. This film highlights the various flaws a human being can have and shows that money definitely has the power to corrupt.

Are you heading out to the theaters come November 5 to see Client 9?

I feel bad for his family. I wonder how his wife and kids handled all the bad publicity. What a nightmare.
