As expected from HBO they could not resist the Orange Man Bad bias, but it is not too bad. If you focus just on the 3 congressman you will get the nice explanation of how political corruption is organized. I am sure they could have picked better footage to put in the movie, but as mentioned bias and desire to tell the fun story got in the way. That aside this movie is really unique in the mainstream as it clearly describes corruption mechanisms. My only wish is that there is a 6 hour directors cut for people like me that would like to know a bit more of boring details, instead of nicely edited cool parts.
