This is a film that is a study in power and how one man shaped political discourse in ways that no one saw before, but has been elevated to new levels today.

Prosecutorial as it is, Matt Tyrnauer shows us the weirdly whimsical side of the man... I guess even river scum must have professional courtesy.

Roy Cohn is dead, but as Where's My Roy Cohn? makes dismayingly clear is that his ghost still haunts us.

Where's My Roy Cohn? could be a soap opera if it wasn't so real.

... succeeds by digging deeper into Cohn's personal life and his public image, showing how a shadowy figure like Cohn gains influence and wields power behind the scenes, and persuasively connects his legacy to present-day affairs.

Director Matt Tyrnauer (previous documentaries include "Valentino: The Last Emperor" and "Studio 54") makes fine use of archival materials.

Regardless of whether you think he was a man of integrity or the reason authoritarians have risen to power, [the film] is entertaining because Cohn was himself an entertainer.

An effective, dispiriting documentary.

Incisive and informative if you're trying to understand today's amoral political landscape...

With its engaging storytelling, the film is a relevant look at history that has repeated itself; it's also character portrait that, while not penetrating, satisfyingly appeals to our fascination with evil.

As the documentary explores the personal and political sides of Roy Cohn, it makes a strong case for how he shaped our current political landscape.

Tyrnauer tells Cohn's story through interviews with family members and colleagues, and makes it very clear that he's indirectly telling the story of Trump. This exposé of "a personality in disarray" is a two-for-one deal.

Tyrnauer's well-researched film does an excellent job explaining how this man behaved like a soulless ghoul. But the way the filmmaker goes about doing so feels rote.

...when Roy Cohn said "Don't tell me about the law, just tell me who the judge is," he wasn't kidding-because if you can't work the law, you can always work the judge.

It's enough to make you physically ill. But it's better that we know the facts, isn't it? See Where's My Roy Cohn? and connect the dots, if you dare.

Fascinating refresher-course/portrait of America's Machiavelli, the Bond Villain of American politics and mentor to a president facing impeachment.
October 16, 2019
The documentary tells the story of Cohn, his life and career, and it's a grim saga.
October 11, 2019
The riveting documentary "Where's My Roy Cohn?"... is a lively look at a polarizing figure.
October 11, 2019
Doesn't generate much sympathy for the devil, but it does confirm that Cohn's direct influence is still being felt today.
October 11, 2019
Thorough and essential.
