Review: Bully. Coward. Victim. The Story of Roy Cohn

You might think last year’s Where’s my Roy Cohn told us all we need to know about the man who spawned the current occupant of the White House. But Ivy Meeropol, the granddaughter of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, thinks there’s a lot more to tell. In her new documentary she’s got an axe to grind and she pulls out everything in her arsenal. If you’ve never heard of Roy Cohn, this film is a trove of anecdotes about him, his “friends” in high places, his self-hating homosexuality, and yes, his mentorship of Trump. It’s a litany of his evil deeds and there’s not really anyone in the film who has a good thing to say about him, except gossip columnist Cindy Adams. He eventually comes off as a pathetic man.
