Movie Review

Title: The Smartest Guys In The Room About: An inside look at Enron before the fall Learn a bunch why the company collapsed? Kinda. But the movie makers understand you can't spend more than 10 minutes on the accounting tricks without boring your audience Best parts: Footage from the huge Enron company meetings and the Congressional hearings. What I had forgotten: How the accounting firm Arthur Andersen disintegrated in the scandal. What I had forgotten #2: All of the Enron commercials that ended with "Ask Why." Rent it?: I'd pass. The only way you could appreciate what happens (and I don't) would be to spend a month with someone explaining it to you. Moral: Greed is not good.
