    Oscar Winning 'Inside Job' Director Charles Ferguson To Direct HBO's Julian Assange Film

    Alex Gibney Already Four Months In On His Assange Project For UniversalWhile he may have fallen off the front page of newspapers around the world -- at least for now -- there hasn't been a character as fascinating as Julian Assange in quite a while. The man behind Wikileaks has singlehandedly caused government leaders to sweat by leaking classified cables and documents that in many cases have shown politicians bending the truth, lying or covering up facts about a number of diplomatic issues. Hardly surprising. But in an era when fewer journalists seem willing to kick down doors and more complacent to simply report what's handed to them by Was...

    Exclusive: Oscar Winning Documentarian Alex Gibney's Top Films Of 2010

    2010 was a particularly compelling year for documentaries, even if there wasn't a break-out, "March of the Penguins"-type success story in there. We got stories about street art ("Exit Through the Gift Shop"), Facebook ("Catfish"), the financial crisis ("Inside Job") and the general fucked-up-ness of the American educational system ("Waiting for 'Superman'"). All of these stories are amazing, for sure, but one of the more incredible stories of the year, in terms of documentaries, was that one filmmaker, the Oscar-winning Alex Gibney, created two of the year's very best - "Casino Jack and the United States of Money" and "Client 9: The Rise and...

    'Client 9' Director Alex Gibney Talks The Psychology Of Denial, His Approach To The Financial Crisis

    Prodigious Oscar-Winning Documentarian Talks The Hubris Of Politicians & Says His Lance Armstrong Doc Is Next2010 has been an embarrassment of riches when it comes to documentary films. Between Banksy's gonzo "Exit Through the Gift Shop," Charles Ferguson's financial crisis breakdown "Inside Job," and everything in between ("Catfish," which might not even have been a documentary at all, was still pretty entertaining). One of the best, and most unfairly overlooked, it seems, is Alex Gibney's blistering "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer." A multi-pronged take on the disgraced Governor of New York, who went from cracking down on Wal...
