I am pretty psyched for Casino Jack and the United States of Money, the latest movie from Alex Gibney. Gibney’s documentaries—especially the wonderful, Oscar-winning, and deeply disturbing Taxi to the Dark Side—are informed by a deep understanding for how the world really works. That’s why I’m so eager to see Casino Jack. This time, Gibney’s taking on the dark side of DC and the story of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. The trailer and the title hint that the story is bigger than Abramoff himself. And as much as DC wants to ignore it, that’s the truth. Watch the trailer:

The movie opens in New York and Los Angeles May 7 and goes into wide release later that month.
