look but don't touch touch but don't taste he's a sadist he's an absentee landlord he loves that i'm never a humanist maybe the last humanist al pacino playing a humanist and lawyer that's the classic legal movie devil's advocate he's now marking his 25th anniversary at a time when the law seems to be a near constant source of fixation and debate in our politics our national culture

lawyers

continue to emerge as key players in the standoff over

trump

's failed coup on the future of our democracy pacino plays a scheming lawyer using his knowledge of the rules to break them which may echo

lawyers

like

giuliani

and cool plot or john eastman both under investigation for committing crimes themselves then there are the other

lawyers

who stepped up as people who tried to hold the line against that blow.

Some of the most vital damning testimony about

Trump

's attempts to overthrow the election and support the insurrection came from

in the White House—

lawyers

for the vice president who tried, they say, to act as shepherds of the law in those roles, which which brings us to this classic archetype in devil's advocate it has keanu reeves playing the all man trial lawyer who believes it's possible to follow the rules without losing your soul i don't like alexander cohen i don't think he's a good but this isn't a popularity contest this is a murder trial and the movie tests that lawyer's approach when he goes and joins a fancy manhattan law firm headed by al pacino's john milton which turns out to be being evil and not just like a bad lawyer but really evil in the sense that he is the literal devil that killed those people do you really think he set me up melissa all i know you co you have to follow your gut i don't like it here kevin these women omg i mean i'm seeing things for god's sake free will is like butterfly wings once touched they never take off no i just set the stage you pull your own strings what i don't lose i win i win i'm a lawyer that's my job that's what i do who in his right mind kevin could possibly deny that the 20th century was completely mine all kevin all my i'm looking at kevin pekin now the story is fascinating in part because the devil is A riveting villain whose blatant rule-breaking is the whole point and there's a timeless appeal that shows up in our politics of late as well. pacino and

trump

's devil command attention because their blatant and over-the-top villainy is exciting and there's a joy in transgressive behavior you're excited about s having a great time doing something you shouldn't notice mischief is done for everyone even with a sly smile we accomplished more than anyone thought possible no one thought we could get close i'm a surprise kevin you don't see me coming frankly , we won this election, it's my time, now someone had to do it, I'm the one. a vanity is definitely my favorite sin it goes beyond performance there is actually something quite modern about imagining the devil or the forces of evil that we would have to deal with as a society or a democracy in the guise of the litigator or the technocrat that skilled

lawyers

can often mislead people without lying and shaping perception while staying within technical lines now in preparing this segment we as you saw talked to jayco medora he sees a parallel here as well says pacino's milton and

trump

, they both enjoy showing off their skill, they break things legally. for the most part and he's right even if you think gosh hasn't crossed the line he is currently under investigation for breaking things illegally and his time may come but in many cases from mueller mixed bag and obstruction to racketeering financiers donald

trump

does two things that have helped his survival, one that he normally tests everything and goes overboard a little at a time which means keeping track of knowing where the line is and that means he is thinking ahead for complicate any possible case against him, he backed down on illegal plots like the military coup, as we reported, he demanded that the Justice Department interfere with the vote count, but he later backed down on that. he testified and walked out when it was clear he was basically going to face too much criticism so he pushed way beyond where he was supposed to but still backed off when he saw a

criminal

case on the horizon i said two things and here's the second and it takes us back to devil's advocate

trump

always always shows other people deploys other people for the dirty work avoids leaving fingerprints like he avoids email in recent years we have seen two employees convicted and sentenced to prison for what what they did for him, right now, two other

lawyers

are facing possible prosecution for the failed coup again, an activity for donald

trump

now is amazing and I have to tell you that it is somewhat embarrassing for those

lawyers

but many of

trump

's

lawyers

are habitually in trouble not because they are bad litigators in the sense of being incompetent or making mistakes, but because they get caught crossing lines for

trump

like who sees on his screen putschist john eastman wanted by agents it's the first time his career happened after he started working for

trump

these are

trump

's

lawyers

his advice his defenders which brings us back to this lawyer of the devil the legal profession faces these moral questions basically every day how to defend a guilty client how do you draw a line between past conduct and future misconduct how do you differentiate ethics if you can keep them between the enthusiastic defense to which people are legally entitled and the commission of new crimes for a client to which they have no right and no lawyer is allowed? to do that you can get him charged so you need a lawyer from your own komenduri he also points out that this issue is important in the movie and today democracy collides he says

mount

ing a strong defense for

criminal

s is part of a just civilization but the profession legal contains the seeds of the potential downfall of civilization we see this in the defenses of

trump

's behavior, both legal and political, he never seems to run out of devil advocates now in fiction those advocates include a real devil this movie is based on a book by andrew neiderman who says he decided to make the devil a major advocate because in the modern world is where he thought the devil would operate more comfortably taking either side maneuvering niderman is an author who closely follows politics and sees parallels with

trump

and researching this report for you guys tonight, he actually told us in the movie that there's a character of a rich new yorker who basically nte gets away with hiring the right

lawyers

in the movie they filmed that character's house as the top four floors of 725 fifth avenue which is the real real donald

trump

golden house you see here in

trump

tower now that can sound like just another kind of surreal cultural overlay but it's actually more of a coincidence about a movie if you think about it, it also reflects the truth, the real pre-political

trump

was notoriously eager to cameo in almost any movie he appeared in he could mess with even small parties making fun of him or even promoting a building he owned when he couldn't appear on camera niderman explored that very theme as downfall to some in his work it's the theme of vanity that some may as well call it a sin and it can lead people who have everything to take seemingly wild risks and make seemingly inexplicable mistakes that's how the The devil's advocate ends his story with the devil taking over his favorite sin I'm so sorry but I can't represent my client anymore.

This is a story that needs to be told. It's you. You are a star. Call me in the morning. failing at whatever you think is what drives people to make these kinds of mistakes, it's also what we've seen tempt so many people beyond the path they initially chose in politics or public service into something far more terrible that we all have to live by and that's why when we talk about law, rules, morality and ethics, we're not just talking about the limits as they're written and passed down, we're talking about whether we as a society can keep up United with what we believe. be good and the best for all over evil and the triumph of oppression by a very very small few
