House of Hammer will only further damage his already tattered reputation, when reconsidering those vicious allegations through the testimony of an outspoken former salesman Courtney Vucekovich and social media villains who have amplify her story and others like it.
Worse for actors, however, the satisfaction of his aunt, Casey Hammerabout their illustrious family, which she says is defined by a history of male dominance, crime and sexual monstrosity.
Documentary + three-part exploration premieres September 2 House of HammerThe main twist of the film is the participation of Casey, who has granted a large amount of criticism towards her grandfather Armand, his son (and her father) Julian, and her brother (and father’s father). Armie) Michael. As she says, these are three people who are dysfunctional, callous, bully, and she’s more than happy – along with directors Elli Hakami and Julian P. Hobbs – to broadcast the family’s dirty clothes race, beginning with Armand, whose father was a founding member of the Communist Party of America, and who is said to have spent his early years working as a real spy against the United States, transferring money and ie from our shores to the Soviet Union. Time to become a capitalist power player, Armand erased those elements from his résumé, and sent his first two wives before marrying a third, who was his financier. eventually became a tycoon at the head of the Occidental Petroleum Company.
House of Hammer paint Armand as a ruthless tyrant who runs the lives of his descendants, makes money through bribery and other illegal activities, and cares little about anyone other than himself — marked by his constant monitoring of people’s activities and most of all, by an anecdote about how when his wife found out he was having an affair with Martha Kaufman, he responded by forcing Martha to switch named Hillary Gibson (as well as her hair) so they could continue their relationship. Although Armand’s out-of-control son Julian has learned from his father’s example — in one disgusting story, the doctor alleges he got into a fight with his son Michael after trying to buy an old girlfriend. Michael’s teen at a party, he then had an eight-month trial with her. —Armand hates his own offspring. Then again, who wouldn’t, assume he had to cover up Julian killing his friend in 1955 because of a gambling debt. Instead, Armand considers his nephew Michael as his obvious heir, and transforms him from a partying youth into his successor.
According to the Hakami and Hobbs series, Michael becomes a Christian after marrying his wife Dru, and eventually befriends Armand successfully enough to be his primary beneficiary (for the sum of 40). million dollars) upon the tycoon’s death in 1990. Casey’s equivalent Michael’s difficult business practices resulted in the exploitation and false benefits of her Hammer relatives, including Armie, who had behavior is seen as a continuation of a long family tradition. All over House of HammerCasey strongly talks about the violations committed by her loved ones to both others and herself, the most damning of which is her revelation that her father Julian was more than just an alcoholic and scary drugs, but also alleged a predator sexually abused her — one about which she proved to be discreet enough to discuss in detail.
There’s a lot of rancidity in House of Hammer, led by the now well-documented behavior of Armie, whose recent tribulations prompted by social media are echoed in the first episode of the proceedings. Hakami and Hobbs never miss an opportunity to sensationalize their material as much as possible, be it through spooky dramatic entertainment (full of creepy closed doors, dark corridors) and ropes strung on hotel beds) and accompanied by overcooked music and acoustic cues. The series leans towards its tabloid nature at all available turns, to the point of at times contradicting the #MeToo-style support given to Armie’s victims, shown here as Vucekovich, a female Dallas businessman who has an impromptu relationship with Call me by your name The star begins with online chat and ends with backlash-related incidents that Courtney is still too painful to describe fully.

Courtney’s narration shows that Armie makes it clear that Armie’s modus operandi is to blow new fires with affection and attention (i.e. “love bombs”), wiping them out with trips to the desert. desert, and then slowly revealed his true deviant desires, regarding the Shibari (a Japanese form bound by ropes), etched his initials in — and left the terrible bites — his mistresses, as well as his frequent rape and cannibal fantasies. Records of his text exchanges with Courtney clearly show his scheming strategy to attract women. At the same time, social media users Candice Cronkhite and Lauren Skae explain how — after Armie’s ex released twisted conversations with him via her @houseofeffie Instagram account — they did to publicize the controversy surrounding the actor and then his family’s dark secret. As far as the synopsis of the ongoing scandals goes, it’s a fixable affair, aided by archival photos, home movies and personal videos, some of them taken from Finsta Armie’s privacy.
Whether Armie will ever face justice for his alleged misconduct is still up in the air, as is the chance for the career return he so desperately craves (despite the publicity). How his current job of selling timeshares in the Caymans contributes to that scheme is a mystery). However, as a combination of a provocative TMZ exhibit and an incendiary all-encompassing autobiography, House of Hammer depicts its subject in the least flattering light imaginable, claiming that he is a violent abuser who learned his terror-trading tricks from his ancestors – due to That makes him a movie star that clearly embodies the erosion of American wealth and privilege.
