Movies: Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room

This weekend I watched Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, a documentary on the fall of Enron. It was pretty interesting, but sort of depressing. Hearing about how the traders convinced California power plants to shut down during the rolling blackouts a few years ago, so they could sell energy back when prices rose was disturbing. As was watching all the top executives cash out huge sums of stock while all the rank & file employees were frozen out of their accounts. Real nice.

But regardless I thought the film was interesting.
