Sex, hubris, money, politics, black socks, conspiracy: Alex Gibney’s documentary Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer deepens the saga of New York’s former governor and attorney general into the paradoxical morality play it really was. Spitzer, almost three years after he was caught soliciting escorts, comes off as chastened but still regal, like a hawkeyed Jewish Kennedy. The film portrays him as a man brought down by his private peccadilloes — but also by his spiky fearlessness about making enemies. B+
