Tabloid DVD Review



Synopsis: Oscar-winning director Errol Morris presents his most provocative and sexiest film yet. In the late 1970s, Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney became a tabloid staple when she kidnapped her former beau, a Mormon missionary named Kirk Anderson, and tied him to a bed to deprogram his religious beliefs by having nonstop sex with him. Morris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line) follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168 whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams led her across the globe, into jail and onto the front page. Funny, strange and disturbing , TABLOID is a vivid portrait of obsession, delusion and scandal sheet notoriety

Review: We are so into documentaries here at the Legion.  Yeah, we're dorks that way.  Tabloid is my favorite documentary since SICK.  The movie has archival footage and interviews that tell the story of Joyce McKinney back in the 1970s when she kidnapped the man she loved and raped him to unbrainwash the mormon out of him.  lol.  C'mon, thats hilarious...and not a terrible idea.  No?  Hmmm...well, regardless, this is a colorful and fun watch.  IF you enjoy the inappropriate and the subversive, this is it!  Tabloid rocks.

Interest Range: Drama
