Where's My Roy Cohn? Doc Trailer

"Attack. Don't settle, don't apologize." Sony Classics has unveiled the trailer for the doc film Where's My Roy Cohn?, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. This is the latest documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer (of Valentino: The Last Emperor, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, Studio 54) and it connects the dots between Cohn and our worrisome current state of affairs. "If you were in his presence, you knew you were in the presence of evil." He's terrifying. One of the most controversial and influential American men of the 20th Century, Roy Cohn was a ruthless, unscrupulous lawyer and political power broker whose career ranged from acting as chief counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy's Communist-hunting subcommittee to molding more corrupt politicians that still reign today. Reviews praised the film stating that, "a diabolical public figure mesmerizes from the grave." Worth a watch, if you can stomach this.

Here's the official trailer for Matt Tyrnauer's doc Where's My Roy Cohn?, direct from SPC's YouTube:

Where's My Roy Cohn? Poster

Lawyer Roy Cohn personified the dark arts of American politics, turning empty vessels into dangerous demagogues - from Senator Joseph McCarthy to his final project, Donald J. Trump. This thriller-like doc exposé connects the dots, revealing how a deeply troubled master manipulator shaped today's American nightmare. Where's My Roy Cohn? is directed by acclaimed American doc filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer, director of the documentaries Valentino: The Last Emperor, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, and Studio 54 previously. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Sony Classics will release Tyrnauer's Where's My Roy Cohn? doc in select theaters starting September 20th this fall.

I don't know much about him, but he was obviously unsrupulous scoundrel. Of course, modern societies always somehow open spaces for such people. It's upon those societies to do more and prevent that. I'm interested seeing this, but obviously, not out of sympathy but for the matter of understanding more about social pathology which is still raging around us ...

Most evil people don't think of themselves as evil.

Well said! In fact, I'd say 'all' evil people don't think of themselves as evil.

Just another in a VERY long list of "do as I say and not as I do" Republicans.

Don't be naive Charles. It ain't just republicans.

I can't think of ONE Democrat who comes even close to about 10 Republicans I could name that are as hypocritical as this guy. So help me out.

Obama? The Clintons?

Well there you go. You either didn't understand my comment or couldn't understand it. I clearly said "hypocritical". Do you know what that word means? If you do, then please tell me how Obama or Clinton were hypocrites. I don't recall them jumping on the moral majority bandwagon like all those republicans have. Please enlighten me as to how those guys are hypocrites.

Don't take the bait. Trumpets are incapable of critical thinking.
