For all the information here, Gibney is unusual among investigative documentarians in that he never forgets he's making cinema. Full Review

Spitzer was undone by his zipper, but as Client 9 makes clear, he was also undone by his refusal - or inability - to make nice with some of the state's most powerful characters. Full Review

Washington Post
Client 9 doesn't make any excuses for Spitzer, who is interviewed extensively in the film and who wisely insists that he alone is responsible for his fate. Full Review

New York Magazine
It's probably easier for an ex-prosecutor known for macho threats to say he got caught screwing than for him to say he got screwed. But folks, he was reamed. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Say what you will about Eliot Spitzer, he's a marvelous subject for a documentary, and Alex Gibney has made a film worthy of him. Full Review
