Enron dives from the seventh largest US company to bankruptcy in less than a year in this tale told chronologically. The emphasis is on human drama, from suicide to 20,000 people sacked: the personalities of Ken Lay (with Falwellesque rectitude), Jeff Skilling (he of big ideas), Lou Pai (gone with $250 M), and Andy Fastow (the dark prince) dominate. Along the way, we watch Enron game California’s deregulated electricity market, get a free pass from Arthur Andersen (which okays the dubious mark-to-market accounting), use greed to manipulate banks and brokerages (Merrill Lynch fires the analyst who questions Enron’s rise), and hear from both Presidents Bush what great guys they are.

“Lifting the Veil is the long overdue film that powerfully, definitively, and finally exposes the deadly 21st century hypocrisy of U.S. internal and external policies, even as it imbues the viewer with a sense of urgency and an actualized hope to bring about real systemic change while there is yet time for humanity and this planet. See this film!” – Larry Pinkney Editorial Board Member & Columnist, The Black Commentator

    My gosh! Listening to Bernie Sanders made me wonder…how is the Obama Care health plan going to solve the problems he brought up? A 75 yr. old, wondering where health care is going to come from? I talked to a health care administrator at a local hospital, not to long ago, and he said there will be age controls on health care that will be worked out in the future. 14 and below and 54 and above citizens will not be in the optimal health care service range because they are less productive members of society! Even Obama mentioned that, a few years ago, when he commented about older cancer patients, he said that society probably shouldn’t spend it’s limited precious resources there, but make the persons passing as comfortable as possible! That flies in the face of what Sanders was yelling about!
