Review: Enron: The Smartest Guy in the Room


I just saw this movie at the Apollo cinema in London. I had a few expectations but I came out feeling different then what I expected. I knew some facts about Enron but not close to the amount of facts that I know now. This is a documentary type movie, and gives you a glimpse of the corporate giant once called Enron.

I had personal feelings attached to this because I lived during those times in California. And I lived with the ridiculous electrical expenses and rolling black outs in Northern-California. To know the truth I felt enraged but I was happy about knowing the truth. I wish I could do something but I can’t, but at least I know. And knowing is half the battle!

I can’t recommend this movie enough to people. This is really worth watching and seeing what corporate giants get away with in the financial world which is worse then robbing any bank or even Fort Knox for that matter. Many people’s lives have been ruined, and it caused one of the large accounting giants to go down with it. There is a lot attached to it, and recently a judgment was reached for some of the executives of Enron, but still it isn’t enough.
