This month has been a very good one for leftist documentaries. Joining 
“The Cove” and “Crude” are two more films at the Film Forum. The first 
is “American Casino”, which opens today. Directed by Andrew Cockburn 
(Alexander’s brother) and his wife Leslie, this amounts to a film 
version of Matt Taibbi’s hard-hitting Rolling Stone article on the 
subprime meltdown but without the gonzo flourishes. This will be 
followed by “The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and The 
Pentagon Papers” that opens on the 16th. Both movies are outstanding.
