Watch a Clip From the Eliot Spitzer Documentary Client 9

Alex Gibney’s documentary Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, about former New York governor Eliot Spitzer's scandalous fall, won’t be in theaters until November 5, but you can watch an exclusive clip here right now (also, the film hits iTunes, On Demand, Amazon, Vudu, XBOX Live, and Playstation today). Astoundingly, Spitzer agreed to cooperate with Gibney for the documentary, and you can see him here answering the very basic, but all-important question: Did getting caught “even occur to you?” Also in this clip, two of the escorts who had dealings with Spitzer talk about their experiences: “He was extremely paranoid. He knew that his entire political career was on the line. And ultimately vice just took over virtue and he could not control himself.”
