What a fascinating and extremely disgusting person. The documentary just about manages to avoid being pulled into Roger Stone's charisma bubble and presents a well paced journey into shady politic as well as some alarming truths behind the Trump election campaign.
The ultimate primer into the contemporary American political landscape, which is so inherently corrupted, compromised, and broken that, in comparison, regimes like Russia or China seem almost democratic, even benevolent. In a sense, Roger Stone is the perfect embodiment of the modern American, the ultimate, soulless salesman.
Although this isn't a particularly great piece of documentary filmmaking - for one, the creators don't hold their subject accountable at all - it falls in with "Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie" for me as a portrait of a fascinatingly volatile personality; Morton and Stone both men who altered the American media landscape in their own way and who, despite great wealth, possessed a startling lack of taste.
