Eliot Spitzer Compares Himself To Icarus In Clip From New Documentary

One of the most anticipated films showing at this year's Tribeca Film Festival is one that doesn't even have a name yet-- Alex Gibney's untitled documentary about Eliot Spitzer, the former New York State Governor who fell disastrously from grace when he was caught in 2008 patronizing prostitutes. Gibney is the Oscar winner behind Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room, and he actually got Spitzer to sit down and talk about what, exactly, he was thinking when he showed up at Emperors Club VIP.

We're hoping to get a look at the film when it debuts at the festival later this month, but for now, Fortune Magazine has an exclusive clip, in which Spitzer compares himself to Icarus, flying too close to the sun and all that. It's pretty fascinating, and promises a lot more interesting stuff to come. Check out the clip below:
