One of the most controversial and influential American men of the 20th Century, Roy Cohn was a ruthless and unscrupulous lawyer and political power broker whose 28-year career ranged from acting as chief counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy's Communist-hunting subcommittee to molding the career of a young Queens real estate developer named Donald Trump.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...the movie won't deliver any bombshell revelations to viewers who already know the outline of Cohn's life...'s still worth seeing for the incisive witnesses the filmmaker has gathered to recount Cohn's life and speculate on what made him tick.

NY Post Full Review
Average Roy Cohn was way more entertaining than the new documentary about Roy Cohn. Some fantastic tidbits are revealed in the otherwise straightforward film, though. ... while we learn a few fun facts, we get no insight into them. Where's my better Roy Cohn documentary?

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...Tyrnauer ties the elements together in a way that creates a ferocious, fast-paced account of a real-life supervillain. Tyrnauer's flashes of compassion for this self-hating Jew and homosexual ...remind us that his subject's toxic, insidious amorality did not go to the grave with him.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good This sharp, to-the-point portrait of the crook, fixer, and right-wing pitbull resists the urge to darkly glamorize him. Apart from a virulent (and possibly legitimately felt) anti-communism, there's no clue here as to what powered Cohn besides rage and ambition.
