Director Alex Gibney paints a chilling morality tale of greed, arrogance and the darker side of capitalism — Enron’s role fostering California’s energy crisis is particularly galling — with news and archive footage. Extras include additional interviews with scribes Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind and then-Gov. Gray Davis, plus a “where are they now?” segment on Ken Lay, Jeff Skillings and Andy Fastow’s criminal charges and the pending trial. The improv group Firesign Theater enacts an Enron radio opera to Wagner’s, “Ride of the Valkyries,” while a “making of” docu entitled “We Should All Ask Why” snidely tips its hat to Enron’s marketing slogan.
