Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room

What I like about Gibney's documentaries is that they're never just about the subject at hand. He's extremely interested in human nature and why we act the way we do. In "Enron", the filmmaker really taps into the essence of evil and how weak human beings can be under the veil of shared responsibility.Most importantly, Gibney crafts a heavy-handed subject with superlative dexterity, which translates to all audiences.
