Recently released on DVD - I thought it was a decent documentary. To me, it made Eliot Spitzer a little more human, but also showed what a petulant bully he was at times. At least he was willing to sit and answer embarrassing questions on film. In terms of his fights with Wall Street, on some of the cases I didn't think the movie presented an unbiased view.
The strangest part of the movie was that one of the escorts refused to be interviewed on camera, so the director interviewed her off camera and then hired an actress to play her role.
I like documentaries and thought this was an enjoyable movie.
