Casino Jack: The corruption scandals of the Bush years - World Socialist Web Site

Casino Jack: The corruption scandals of the Bush years By Joanne Laurier Directed by George Hickenlooper, written by Norman Snider “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog,” counsels Jack Abramoff in George Hickenlooper’s movie Casino Jack. Kevin Spacey stars as Abramoff, the Washington influence peddler who bought and sold congressmen and government officials during the Bush White House era. Hickenlooper (who died in October 2010 at the age of 47) begins his quasi-docudrama in the late 1990s at the height of Abramoff’s reign as king of K Street—the center of Washington’s powerful lobbying industry (“Everybody sells access”). Abramoff is shown telling his mirrored reflection that “...

Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream, Documentary Heaven

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney ( Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room ) presents his take on the gap between rich and poor Americans in Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream. Gibney contends that America’s richest citizens have “rigged the game in their favor,” and created unprecedented inequality in the United States. Nowhere, Gibney asserts, is this more evident than on Park Avenue in New York. 740 Park in Manhattan is currently home to the highest concentration of billionaires in the country. Across the river, less than five miles away, Park Avenue runs through the South Bronx, home to the poorest congressional district in the United States...

Casino Jack, Review St. Louis

Whenever a film states that it is based on true events I get nervous…not because I doubt this statement, but because I realize that these events are not some made up story but something real that I may have to think about after I actually see the film. It’s like being told there are ghosts for real, and then you have to go outside and actually see them. And so it was with Casino Jack…the story is based on the real life Jack Abramoff, Washington lobbyist who was involved in a huge scandal involving millions of dollars and many broken promises…even a murder. Directed by the late George Hickenlooper who gave us such amazing films like “Hearts of Darkness” and “Dogtown”, this was a beautifully...

Casino Jack (Blu-ray Review) at Why So Blu?

Casino Jack was a 2010 film that may have had a chance to bring some more good graces to the already very accomplished Kevin Spacey. His portrayal of lobbyist Jack Abramoff was a very good turn that played well off of his talents as an actor. The film ended up being largely dismissed; however, I still found it to be an entertaining comedic drama and biopic. Revisiting the film, my opinions on it remain the same, but it is a film that is worth seeking out, now that it is on a very good looking Blu-ray. Jack Abramoff: I’m Jack Abramoff and I work out every day. Casino Jack is a fact-based biopic that deals with lobbyists, finance, and the shameless fleecing of the American taxpayer. It...

The Dude, Not the Duke: True Grit and Casino Jack, East Bay Express

Intense sequences of western violence." Those are the words we love to hear. It means that another contemporary filmmaker is trying his — or in the case of Ethan and Joel Coen, makers of True Grit, their — hand at reviving the western. That hard-to-kill, ostensibly outdated genre, periodically revived by everyone from James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) to Tommy Lee Jones (The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada) to Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), evidently sits in a sweet spot with the Coen Bros. Their last stab at it was 2007's No Country for Old Men, with its Texas borderland narcotraficante milieu and monolithic hit man. Compared to that...
