Oscar winner Alex Gimbey (Taxi To The Dark Side, Freakonomics) does an excellent job of unraveling the skein of corruption and abuse that blanketed the life of what appeared to be an incorruptible man. [Full review in Spanish]

Featuring interviews with the man himself, his enemies and one of the hookers, this isn't just a fascinating yarn but a, cough, penetrating character study.

So was Spitzer a closet danger junkie, a stranger sex addict, victim of a stern tycoon dad 'who foreclosed me in monopoly,' or done in by an adolescent omnipotence that enormous power and wealth can bring. A shrink's two cents would have been helpful.

The movie is perfectly paced, clocking in a few minutes short of two hours, and holds your interest with its captivating subject matter. The musical selections and the aerial shots of Times Square add to the entertainment value of this slick production.
