Director George Hickenlooper died shortly before the opening of his comedy-drama about Jack Abramoff, the real-life lobbyist whose efforts to influence major figures in the nation's capital took a questionable turn.
Kevin Spacey expectedly offers a tour de force as the energetic, charismatic Abramoff. Barry Pepper plays his partner in approaching others, and Kelly Preston, Jon Lovitz and Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight") also appear. DVD extras: deleted scenes; outtakes; "photo diary." *** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
