Where's My Roy Cohn?
Power broker, unscrupulous lawyer, mafia consigliere, character assassin, white-collar criminal and modern day Machiavelli. Award-winning documentarian Matt Tyrnauer (Studio 54, Valentino: The Last Emperor) returns with a chilling, outrageous and compulsively watchable portrait of American villainy. From Senator Joseph McCarthy to Donald Trump, Roy Cohn spent over 30 years as the right hand man of some of history’s most notorious political figures. A wickedly sharp mind tainted with paranoia and deep self-loathing, his ruthless amorality saw him help send the Rosenbergs to the electric chair, terrorise accused Communists in the 1950s and pull the strings for everyone from J. Edgar Hoover to Richard Nixon. All while partying wildly at Studio 54 and leading a double life as a closeted gay man. Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Where’s My Roy Cohn? unveils both the past crimes and poisonous legacy of a singular monster of recent history.
