About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a chilling, completely fascinating documentary that reveals the face of unregulated greed in a way that's every bit as terrifying as Lon Chaney's unmasking in The Phantom of the Opera. Maybe more so, because everything here is true.
Fresh: Audiences jeered and shouted at the screen in outrage. It has that kind of impact, without resorting to any of Michael Moore's below-the-belt tactics.
Fresh: There will be lots of seething at the sight of it all, but there are enough good laughs to make the experience more than worthwhile.
Fresh: Gibney has been able to get his hands on the right materials, and he assembles the right talking heads to string the story together.
This documentary is AMAZING
I've watched it about 20 times, and every time I pick up on something new. Everyone should see this movie.
This is one of my favorite films ever. Truly fascinating, suspenseful, funny, depressing, scary, etc. You can't beat it. And it's all true.
Truly worth watching.. Twice..
My business professor first viewed this film to our class in college. I loved it when I first saw it, and still love it after several viewings. There are many lessons to be taken from this documentary, it really is worth watching. The Enron story is a true tragedy.
