Casino Jack Screening in New York City

Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig, Director Alex Gibney, Rock the Vote's Heather Smith, and Village Voice Reporter Tom Robbins participate in a live panel following a screening of Casino Jack in New York City on April 21, 2010.

I covered the event for Talking Points Memo. The lighting and the arrangement of seats in the theater (the SVA Theater in Chelsea) made it difficult to get interesting shots. As for the screening itself, the documentary not only tells the fascinating story of a disgraced lobbyist but also gives a telling and disturbing insight into just how big a role money plays in American politics. The movies will be in theaters next month. In the meantime, head over and read Justin Elliott's review for TPMmuckraker.
