Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room | 2005 | NR | - 5.3.5

The real story about how top executives of Enron, America's 7th largest company at the time of its collapse, pocketed one billion dollars while investors and employees lost everything. The documentary follows Enron's meteoric rise and crash and profiles the men (Kenneth Lay, Jeff Skilling and Andy Fastow) who were responsible. Narrated by Peter Coyote. Directed by Alex Gibney. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Exotic dancers dance in a club: they are topless exposing bare breasts and wear thongs that reveal bare buttocks, as they dance on the stage, twirl around poles and around men.
 We hear that a married man was obsessed with going to strip clubs, taking clients and associates there, and taking dancers with him to his office. We also hear that an exotic dancer became pregnant by a married man who visited her strip club frequently.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man parks his car in a dark, secluded area, we see a flash, hear a bang, and we are told that the man committed suicide (we see a coffin and people gathered at a funeral later), and we see a suicide note.
 We see an accident scene where cars are smashed up and people are taken away on stretchers. A man flips a motorcycle into the air over a deep chasm, and a man jumps off a cliff and glides downward.
 We see a photograph of a man getting stitches in his lip (there is blood on his mouth and chin). A woman hits a man in the face with a pie (we see goo on his face). A crowd of people yells at a man.
 We hear about people undertaking risky "daredevil stunts" (sky diving, dirt biking, rock climbing, etc.) and that a man was almost killed when the car he was driving flipped over. A man wearing handcuffs is taken out of a car, and another man is shown wearing handcuffs. We hear that a man went to jail.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
