Keep Calm
I like to watch documentaries and have three new ones that just came out on DVD that I want to watch. They are (in alphabetical order):

Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Elliot Spitzer-about former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, his rise as a prosecutor of corporate crime (the so-called "Sheriff of Wall Street") to the sex scandal that led to his resignation

Freakonomics-based on the best selling book of the same name, two economists apply their craft to some of society's perplexing problems like "can you bribe kids with money to make them get better grades" and "why do drug dealers live with their parents"?

The Tillman Story-about former NFL star Patrick Tillman who was killed in Iraq by his so-called "friendly fire" and how the US government tried to cover it up.

For more information about any of these, there is a link to an IMDB summary of each film in the poll options below. If you have no opinion or don't like any of these, you can skip the poll, I didn't include an IDGAF option.

From the choices below, if you were in the mood to watch a documentary, which would be your first choice to watch?

That's a difficult choice, as I think they would all be excellent.

Have you seen The Smartest Guys in the Room?

Yes, and if you liked that one, then you'd probably like Client 9 too, because a lot of it is about the dishonesty on Wall Street that Spitzer used to prosecute.

I ended up watching Freakonomics first, but then watched Client 9. Tillman will have to wait for another day.
