Magnolia Pictures will distribute Alex's Gibney's untitled documentary about former New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer. The film won rave reviews out of the Tribeca Film Festival.

Gibney is a busy man these days. His Casino Jack and the United States of Money, which focuses on lobbyist Jack Abramoff, opened on May 7. Magnolia also is responsible for distributing that film. Unfortunately, despite winning rave reviews, Casino Jack hasn't quite caught on yet. The doc has raked in just shy of $60,000 from 11 locations.
