GET ME ROGER STONE

  • Release Year: 2017
  • Runtime: 100 minutes
  • Directed By: Dylan Bank, Daniel DiMauro, and Morgan Pehme
  • Country: USA
With his bespoke suits and collection of Nixon memorabilia, political firebrand and noted eccentric Roger Stone has been a fixture of Republican politics since the 1970s, yet at the same time has always been an outsider. Despite its success, his brand of confrontational (some would say “dirty”) politics was always publicly rejected by the conservative mainstream, though with the shocking ascendancy of his longtime pet project Donald Trump (interviewed in the film), Stone—the ultimate political trickster—would likely say he was just ahead of his time. |Read More

  • Runtime: 96 minutes
  • Directed By: Neil Berkeley

Now, foul-mouthed and unapologetic after decades of flying solo in both his work and in his personal life, Gilbert has shockingly reinvented himself…as a family man. |Read More
