Movie Review - Get Me Roger Stone
Directors Dylan Bank, Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme conduct two recent interviews of Stone and Trump. It's good, but both interviews end up being pointless. It seems unlikely that the directors would have been able to interrogate Trump. He never would have allowed anything even resembling a probe to make him account for the inner-workings of his campaign, but someone like Errol Morris would have come in handy to pry at least something more interesting than what this movie provides.
The filmmakers here though are obviously kept at bay. Stone and Trump make the line of division very clear. They also make it clear how far they can go and how the filmmakers will never be allowed fully inside. This is in stark contrast to a film like Weiner, which felt like it got intimately close to its subject. This movie doesn't get that close, despite literally being allowed into Stone's closet as we watch him undress to show off his muscular physique and Nixon tattoo on his back.
