A must-watch cautionary tale of deregulation, greed, money, power. If our leaders had taken the proper lesson from this debacle, the current economic crisis would not have been so severe.

Tells the serious story without taking itself too seriously.
very entertaining and just incredible the 'reporting of expected profits' as if they were actual profits. It did leave me wondering just who was on the regulatory board that actually approved this form of accounting for Enron....It really was a world of make believe profits.
great visuals in this movie.
