Casino Jack (and the United States of Money) (2010) (SC)
Release Date: January 1, 2012.
"Astonishing and important."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
A tale of international intrigue involving casinos, spies, sweatshops and mob-style killings, this is a story of the way money corrupts our political process. Oscar winning filmmaker Alex Gibney illuminates the way politicians' desperate need to get elected - and the millions of dollars it costs - may be undermining the basic principles of American democracy. Infuriating, yet undeniably eye-opening and entertaining, Casino Jack is a saga of greed and corruption with a cynical villain audiences will love to hate. -- (C) VVS Films, 2010, USA.
