Writer/director Alex Gibney examines the rise and fall of an infamous corporate juggernaut in Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. Based on the book by Fortune Magazine reporters Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind, the film explores the lengths to which the company went in order to appear incredibly profitable, and reveals how Kenneth Lay, Jeff Skilling, and other execs managed to keep their riches, while thousands of lower-level employees saw their loyalty repaid with the loss of their jobs and retirement funds.
