Casino Jack
Release date: 13-07-2011
There’s nothing we love more than dodgy politicians and as far as shady pollies go, Washington, D.C. lobbyist and businessman Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey) ranks right up there. This political satire doesn’t pull its punches and cuts right to the chase rather than hinting at and insinuating things. Casino Jack explores the massive corruption scandal that eventually led to Abramoff, two White House representatives and nine others being convicted in the US. In 2006, Abramoff was found guilty of stealing funds from cashed-up Indian casinos in addition to performing other political favours for people. Put simply, this guy wasn’t at all legit and we couldn’t help but ponder why he’s not a little more well-known for his bad behaviour. After all, we all know about the Watergate scandal and the mischief that Bill Clinton got up to (oops, did we bring that up again?). Casino Jack is one eye-opening tale!
