User Reviews

Informative and entertaining doc on tough and corrupt attorney.
10 February 2020 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

"Where's My Roy Cohn?" is one doc that's well done with old footage, interviews and even own words from Roy that describe this very complex man as somewhat evil or a true American it's who you ask. The film tells of his origins as how he was a real mommies boy, and interested in politics from a young age. Him becoming an attorney his connections helped shaped the future political world, as his first steps were the prosecution of the Rosenbergs, then he was the right hand man to Senator Joseph McCarthy, then Roy sprung out to be a man of his own in the New York legal world.

Roy always fought and sought power never admitting guilt, as he knew how to con and manipulate the system from business dealings to bribes, and dealings with politicians, real estate people and lying to get away. Yet he was good personal friends with Barbara Walters and would mentor Donald Trump during his early days, all while hiding in the closet. As in the 80's rumors begin only Roy denied his homosexuality and dying of "AIDS" until the final day. Well done look at a dark figure of 20 century society. Roy will long be remembered as odd, different and determined heck he even kept a stuffed animal collection.
