Cuban on "The Smartest Guys"
I had forgotten that Mark Cuban was the Executive
Director Producer of Enron: The Smartest Guys In the Room. I remember noticing it in the credits when I watched it, then promptly forgot about it. Anyway, the flick has been racking up good reviews, and Cuban is pretty justifiably pleased about that. (He can now add Roger Ebert's thumbs-up to go with the one they got from Richard Roeper, by the way.)
Anyone else seen this yet? What did you think about it?
UPDATE: Oops. Fixed what Mark Cuban actually did for this movie. Thanks, Dwight!

Charles: Cuban is the executive PRODUCER, not director.
That's about the only thing positive I will take from Cuban. Calling the NBA about Yao Ming's screens is about as lame as John Colyandro talking about campaign finance reform. And his TV show sucks too.
Yes, I was one of the 6 geeks who rushed out on Friday night to see the Enron documentary. I think you have to judge for yourself. I don't think you come away thinking Ken Lay didn't know. Or Jeff Skilling didn't know. What I thought was great was that moment when Skilling was said to realize that he had created the monster that was about to turn on him...What goes around....
