CGiii Comment

BULLY. COWARD. VICTIM. THE STORY OF ROY COHN directed by Ivy Meeropol offers an unflinching look at the infamous attorney who prosecuted Meeropol’s grandparents, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and later argued persuasively for their execution.The film examines Cohn’s life as chief counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy in the late 1950s through the 1980s, when he became a darling of the Reagan White House, a rabid anti-homosexuality activist, and political mentor to Donald J. Trump before meeting his death from AIDS in 1986.The film draws from newly unearthed archival material, as well as recently discovered audiotapes featuring a wide range of candid discussions recorded at the height of Cohn’s career. It contains interviews with Cindy Adams, Alan Dershowitz, Tony Kushner, Nathan Lane and John Waters, among others.
