Rated R · 108 minutes · 2010
Not to be confused with Alex Gibney's recent documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money, this is the dramatic take on Jack Abramoff's high-rolling career as a Washington lobbyist and his precipitous fall amid charges of fraud, conspiracy, and tax evasion. Kevin Spacey contributes a wonderfully flamboyant performance as Abramoff, making him more dimensional—funny, ironic, ruthless, greedy, tender with his family, vicious with his enemies—than the cartoonish figure in black hat and trenchcoat who paraded through the TV news. Director George Hickenlooper (who died in October) wasn't what you'd call a stylist, but he and screenwriter Norman Snider deserve credit just for wrestling Abramoff's epic tangle of con games into a comprehensible story line. With Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston, Jon Lovitz, and Graham Greene.
