Aroview: A cracking script that favours comedy through absurdity over a heavyweight statement on American politics energises this dramatization of the scandal that swirled around Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
Detailed extensively in Alex Gibney's documentary of the same name, the film delivers its own condemnation of the lobbying system and the manner in which politicians are paid for at a smart pace and with excellent comic timing. Kevin Spacey lends his usual smug insolence to the titular role, though there's a lightness to the performances elsewhere that makes this an entertaining, and still enlightening, watch without the unnecessary finger pointing.

3 stars (Good Enough) The story makes it hard to distinguish who are the criminals and who are just doing their job - lobbyists, financiers and politicians - or whether in fact there is any difference at all in some cases. Spacey makes an unattractive character very watchable.~tubbs
