Roy Cohn was a beloved figure at Studio 54 as he palled around with owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager – and director Matt Tyrnauer didn’t seem outraged by that in his fine documentary about the legendary disco. But, Tyrnauer admits, he “thought, of course, Hillary Clinton would win” the 2016 Presidential election as he finished… Continue reading Where’s My Roy Cohn?

If, unlike Moore, you have access to a World Almanac, look it up and you’ll find… Continue reading Where to Invade Next
