If we had a nickel for every time some politician or big-time moneyman screwed the American public, we’d be really rich. But not as rich as Jack Abramoff, the lobbyist who felt the rules didn’t apply to him (as breakable as those rules are). First there was the Alex Gibney documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money. Now, there’s the “narrative” version, Casino Jack, starring Kevin Spacey in the title role. To celebrate this week’s release of the Casino Jack DVD, we’re giving our readers a chance to win one of three copies right here at Meet In the Lobby.
Here’s how to enter: Just leave a comment on this post saying you’d like to win the DVD. We’ll accept all entries through Tuesday, April 19 at 5pm ET, and randomly select our three winners soon after. All winners will be contacted via email.
Casino Jack is the last film directed by George Hickenlooper, who died in 2010 at the age of 47. Hickenlooper is perhaps best known for his contributions on the nearly unbelievable documentary Hearts of Darkness, about the making of Coppola’s Apocalypse Now (it’s probably the most entertaining documentary we’ve ever seen). He also directed the short that led to Billy Bob Thornton’s Sling Blade.
We gotta say it: The prizewinners must have and provide a U.S. or Canadian mailing address and a valid email address. We’re not responsible for lost or late entries, or any lost or damaged prizes delivered through the mail. We only use your email address to contact you at the end of the contest. We don’t share or sell information to anyone.
