Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room

Enron dives from the seventh largest US company to bankruptcy in less than a year in this tale told chronologically. The emphasis is on human drama, from suicide to 20,000 people sacked: the personalities of Ken Lay (with Falwellesque rectitude), Jeff Skilling (he of big ideas), Lou Pai (gone with $250 M), and Andy Fastow (the dark prince) dominate. Along the way, we watch Enron game California's deregulated electricity market, get a free pass from Arthur Andersen (which okays the dubious mark-to-market accounting), use greed to manipulate banks and brokerages (Merrill Lynch fires the analyst who questions Enron's rise), and hear from both Presidents Bush what great guys these are.

Great Movie
This was a good movie. I sort of forgot a lot about it but I remember that it really opened my eyes to some of the things Enron was doing....

decent film
if you followed the enron situation closely, you would know all the evidence the SEC had on them was dumped in building 7. I'd like to see this film recreated because so few people know about all the offices and evidence that was destroyed in building 7 by terrorists on 9.11

Fascinating
A great movie to show how smart people will create new, complex instruments that are years ahead of the competition. Once competition catches up, these guys are gone and on to the next thing. Guys like John Arnold who left Enron and now run multi-billion dollar hedge funds.

Must watch documentary
Enron: The Smartes Guys in the Room is one of the best documentaries i've watched lately.

It's the story about 7th greatest corporation which built it's reputation and $70 bill. dollars assets in period of 15-20 years but collapsed and went bankrupt in just 24 days. It's the story about greatest "pump and dump" in corporate history and is a must watch for anyone interested in economy/finance.

What really happened
"Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room" is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

It does a great job explaining how Enron rose and later plummeted. From rolling blackouts in California to massive amounts of white collar crime and fraud, this documentary has it.

If you want to know what happened with Enron, watch this documentary.

Good Documentary
The story of Enron really hit close to home since it is based in Houston, Tx where I live. Plus my mom worked there several years. Luckily she quit and moved onto better before it went down. Enron was a well oiled machine. Apart from all the bad things they preformed, they were a money making business. Having Enron on your resume still carries a lot of weight. Unfortunately they were highly corrupt which later brought them down. This story is amazing to see because it shows you just how deep their corruption went and just how they were connected. Definitely a must watch for anyone looking to see how big business can be evil.
