Eliot Spitzer Opens Up In New Documentary 'Client 9' (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Former Governor Eliot Spitzer opens up about his fall from grace in this exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary 'Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer'.

The film, a work by Academy Award winning director Alex Gibney, chronicles the rise and fall of the once 'untouchable' governor, and the prostitution scandal that ultimately brought him down.

In the clip, Spitzer says his fall was so great, "the only metaphor I can think of, perhaps, is Icarus." The film opens on November 5, 2010.
