Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer - A Real-Life Political Thriller

I recently watched a little-known movie that I'm surprised hasn't garnered much more attention - "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer".

"Client 9" (a documentary) is as compelling as any Hollywood political thriller, full of real-life characters who seem larger than life. The most shocking part is that this is all non-fiction - it actually happened, and continues to happen today.

"Client 9 takes an in-depth look at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. As NY's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America’s largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as Governor, many believed he was on his way to becoming the President. Then The New York Times revealed that Spitzer had been caught seeing prostitutes, and the “Sheriff of Wall Street” fell quickly from grace. With unique access, the film explores the hidden contours of hubris, sex and power".

I think the real story here isn't about Spitzer's involvement in prostitution, but rather about money, power and political manipulation.
