Kevin Spacey stars as once-hotshot, now-disgraced Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff. It's timely political storytelling, using real names (Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, George W. Bush, John McCain), real scandals and some actual news footage. Spacey plays fast and loose as the overconfident political swindler, while director George Hickenlooper (Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, Mayor of the Sunset Strip) keeps the scandalous behavior flying at a rapid pace. It's a lot to absorb in one sitting, but everyone involved looks like they're having a ball skewering the establishment. 108 minutes R.
