Where’s My Roy Cohn?

Where’s My Roy Cohn? The fascination of the human being for evil can hardly be considered a new phenomenon – literacy written centuries ago, The Devil’s Doorway from Machiavelli to Shakespeare, realizes it, as well as the success of the Puccio, Pablo Escobar or the killer serial Ted Bundy revivals confirm the validity of the postulate-, but yesterday yesterday at the Sundance Film Festival, two documentaries portraying men defined again and again as “monsters” by those who knew them (and much earlier by the press) remind us that, although in life bad behaviors are reprehensible and, in many things, regrettable, in art they can be the perfect subject.

Anyone who knows some of the contemporary history of the United States is familiar with the names Julius and Ethen Rosenberg, Joseph McCarthy, J. Edgar Hoover, Rupert Murdoch, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump (infallible), American Animals but perhaps much less with the figure of Roy Cohn, the relentless lawyer and judicial / political operator who links all these characters and, in the manner of a sinister Zelig, was behind or indirectly participated in some of the darkest pages of that country in recent decades, with reverberations that last to this day.

In the documentary Where’s My Roy Cohn? (The title is a phrase recently attributed to Trump himself, expressing his frustration at not having an adviser as effective as Cohn in the White House), A Dog’s Journey director Matt Tyrnauer narrates the fascinating life of this character, from his first steps as an unscrupulous prosecutor who inflamed the anti-communist hysteria to advance his career (he was responsible for sending the Rosenberg marriage to the electric chair, whose guilt of being Russian spies is still disputed, and played a key role in the persecution of communist assumptions carried out by the senator McCarthy) until his conversion into a powerful lawyer and fixer for Italian gangsters and the Trump family in the corrupt New York of the 60s and 70s, with direct access to Reagan’s office and the Republican Party in the 80s.
