Watch: 'Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer' Doc Trailer
It's a hell of a year for documentaries. Another one to add to your list of docs to see by the end of the year is Alex Gibney's Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, an investigative inside look at the downfall of former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned after a prostitution scandal in '08. Spitzer appears in Charles Ferguson's Inside Job and I've heard some refer to Client 9 as an unofficial sequel to Inside Job, in that it looks at this story of what happened to him when he started to fight against the greedy CEOs who control Wall St. Magnolia debuted the official trailer on Apple and it looks damn good. Check it out below!
