"Joan of Arc" is the second part of his rock musical retelling of the life of the virgin French martyr. It was dismissed as "patience-testing" by the Hollywood Reporter and an "eccentric endurance test [which] burns up much of its goodwill by the time the pyre is finally lit" by Variety when it was premiered at the Cannes film festival in May.

Where Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton treated the prospect of impeachment as a serious threat to their presidencies, Trump's boosters have tried to brush off the whole thing.
