Alex Gibney discusses Bethany McLean's whistle-blowing article on Enron and others matters pertinent to Mr. Gibney's documentary about the corruption and deceit at the heart of the world's 7th largest company (ex-company). The film features insider accounts and rare corporate audio and video tapes that reveal the most unimaginable personal excesses of the Enron hierarchy and the utter moral vacuum that posed as corporate philosophy. The human drama that unfolds within Enron's walls resembles a true Greek tragedy and produces a profound domino effect that could shape the face of our economy and ethical code for years to come.
