Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room

Just in case you’d like to raise your blood pressure at least twenty points, then definitely look for Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. This is a documentary that mixes former employee interviews, archival video, documents and experts to tell the Enron story. Of course we all know that Enron became the “poster child” for corporate corruption, and fell down like a house of cards. The details get even more astonishing, and bothersome. This includes the insider trading that went on with the energy futures, the political favoritism of the Bush presidents (father and son), and the accounting method that was all based on future profits rather than actual earnings. If you want an insider view as to how one of the US' top companies imploded into nothing, then check this movie out.

Overall Grade: B-
