Trivia

The title of this documentary comes from a 2017 complaint that President Donald Trump reportedly directed at his then-attorney general Jeff Sessions. In January 2018, the New York Times reported that when Trump learned that Sessions would recuse himself from the Justice Department's investigation of possible Trump campaign involvement in the Russian plan to interfere with the 2016 election, Trump was furious. In the presence of many White House officials, Trump launched into a tirade in which he accused Sessions of failing to protect him, during which he asked, "Where's my Roy Cohn?" Cohn had been one of Trump's early mentors and had also served as his lawyer and "fixer." See more »

A Worthy Documentary
21 September 2019 | by PaulonWestendSee all my reviews

As someone who followed Cohn's career in real time it's clear that the film tells real truths about a complicated and fascinating man with no moral boundaries or bottom. And the lesson of Cohn's life, never admit anything, never apologize, and always hit back harder than you were hit, is abundantly demonstrated. Even his own relatives understood the truth. You will not lose interest in this film.
