Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room
How about the craziest guys in the room? This documentary outlines the rise and fall of Enron. It also examines the principals' personalities and motivations. An interesting analysis of the powerful effect of money and greed. When one of the Senators asks Ken Lay if he's on crack, because it would best explain his actions, you realize these men were delusional, arrogant and blinded by the big bucks. An interesting human study, and portrayal of this modern-day business drama.
