I saw this recently. Wasn't impressed with it at all. It's a total PR rehabilitation puff piece for Spitzer, and even turns into abject hero worship by the end. I expected a lot better from the director of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.

wouldn't a more apporpriate title be "Eliot Spitzer, the ins and outs of his affairs?" I mean, hell, he was "in and out," alot more than he was "up and down," for god's sake.

The director apparently wears his politics on his sleeves, which is revealed in what he directs (calling out the big bad evil corporation, but fanatical about left-leaning politicians, even if they are filthy corrupt).

I enjoyed it because it explored Spitzer's downfall and all the players involved better than any news coverage I had seen. It's not total PR rehab since Spitzer doesn't come off looking well, but it helps that his enemies look worse in comparison.

I spent enough time reading about the "wonderfulness" of the "scourge of Wall Street" to wonder how is it actually possible that his enemies could look worse. That is if the director wasn't attempting a rehab project with this movie.

Enron was an interesting movie though.

Edit: I suppose this liking this movie is going to squarely fall on where one's sympathies lie politically and I should just accept that and move on.
