 When you're a star they let you do it ... the movie about the Trump regime may debut before 2020

Too early? There probably have been numerous projects already underway, perhaps even one started when we thought he would lose the Electoral College vote.

We already have some interesting, even landmark films about a variety of financial scandals, so there will be an actual, rather than satiric Trump biopic, probably produced with …. Russian money. Call it GetTheBigly Shorty.

And we know that’s what Trump really wants, a biopic rather than the soon-to-be historical ignominy as the worst US president.

We already know he cannot write a book long enough for ordinary humans to read. Unlike his predecessor, Trump will have to have any post-POTUS memoir ghost-written.

shocked, shocked that Russians hacked us

We also know films shot in his buildings tend to require cameos with him.

He needs a hagiographic film, not so much like Lincoln or Bulworth, because he’s a … star.

My preference would be something based on the Stavisky Affair like Alain Resnais’s Stavisky, probably because it has both flashbacks and flash-forwards plus a Trotsky cameo, but Hollywood will probably make it more like Stolen Holiday (1937), where there’s no suspicion that the long arm of the law is involved with Stavisky’s self-inflicted demise.

Remember that Steve Bannon did his own hip-hop / rap version of Coriolanus.

Resnais said:

“What attracted me to the character of Alexandre was his connection to the theatre, to show-business in general. Stavisky seemed to me like an incredible actor, the hero of a serial novel. He had the gift of bringing reality to his fantasies by means of regal gestures.” [4] (Among many theatrical references, the film features a scene in the theatre in which Alexandre rehearses a scene from Giraudoux‘s Intermezzo, and another in which he attends a performance of Coriolanus. His office is adorned with theatrical posters.)

(Resnais’s preferred title for the film was Biarritz-Bonheur,)

The Stavisky Affair was a 1934 financial scandal generated by the actions of embezzler Alexandre Stavisky. It had political ramifications for the French Radical Socialist moderate government of the day because the Prime Minister had protected Stavisky, who suddenly died in mysterious circumstances. The political right engaged in large anti-government demonstrations on 6 February 1934. Paris police opened fire and killed 15 demonstrators. 

More importantly, Stavisky did have a real effect on French government.

A right-wing coup d’état seemed like a possibility, but historians agree that the multiple right-wing forces were in no way coordinated and in no way trying to overthrow the government.[1]

Even after the financial stiffness of Mitt Romney, we now have the ultimate in kleptocratic hubris.

U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to fight the power of global elites and told voters he would put “America First.” But surrounding Trump are a number of close associates who have used offshore tax havens to conduct business. 

This visualization, produced with support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, is part of the Paradise Papers investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Süddeutsche Zeitung and more than 90 media partners.

The Paradise Papers is a global investigation based on 13.4 million leaked files from leading offshore law firm Appleby, trust company Asiaciti, and from company registries in 19 secrecy jurisdictions. The files reveal the offshore activities of some of the world’s most powerful people and companies.

There is nothing illegal about doing business offshore, but the offshore industry’s role in allowing tax avoidance and financial secrecy has generated significant public interest. Each of the Influencers featured in this interactive have appeared in the leaked files, either personally or through a company he headed. Information included in this interactive comes from inside the Paradise Papers files, as well as from reporting and research by ICIJ’s journalists and partners.
