A Storm Foretold

Trump’s longtime adviser maneuvers in and out of Danish filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen’s grasp in this jaw-dropping portrait of a puppet master tangled in his own strings. The film captures the combination of toxicity, duplicity and candor that makes Stone such an influential and dangerous figure on the US political landscape. It’s a remarkable, at times terrifying, film. And, set against the potential for another Trump presidential campaign in 2024, it is an important one. It reveals that Stone and his set play at presidential politics like it’s their private game. And not the 3D chess they’d like you to believe, but something far less strategically sophisticated — a round of kids’ Monopoly, perhaps, in which the only things for sure are that Roger Stone always plays as the top hat and he always gets out of jail free.
